after 5 LFS.... no chance... they don't have them in stock... 2 of them may call me if they can get them, but chances are low

skip livebearer - they have to many babies...

CPD are nice but need another type of fish in tank to help them come out (why?? not sure)

i have rasbora naevus they are small, as are uropthalmoides .. the urop. are great with the CPD and VERY small...

the naevus will JUMP if you have flow in the tank .. no idea why, 1/2 my tank has very mellow flow but the swam right up to the outflow and landed up being 'flicked' out of the tank (lid is now on the tank but in the 2 days it took to make one lost 4 OMG!!!)

as for endlers - i have 20 babies in the NJ area (1.5 weeks old) let me know if you want some ANYONE ... i have separated the momies and daddies of the 'older' ones to limit this issue and will keep pulling out the females (males much happier without them)

If you guys are interested in indian natives ask your LFS to contact Andrew Rao via facebook, he's the single largest exporter of Indian natives across the world and is the first person to export P. denisonii across to states and beyond (I get all my natives from him a very dear friend of mine). He ships to US, Germany etc, so can send a consignment towards you guys as well.

Didn't read everything but thought I'd offer my opnions on the few that I saw.

Any of the Microrasboras like the Chili Rasbora make great, tiny schoalers.

Corydoras pygmaeous or hastatus make great tiny schoalers too. Contrary to being a Cory, they swim in the middle strata of the tank. If you wanted a tiny schooler for the lower strata, Corydoras habrosus would be your fish.

In my experience, CPDs or Endlers don't entirely school, its very loose. They will mostly be around each other, but the tight schooling behavior doesn't really exist.

Obviously cardinal or neon tetras school very very nicely. Beckford's Pencils probably get a little larger than you want and they can get testy with one another.

Pygmy cories are funny to watch too - active, wiggly, always darting to the surface and making a bubble
