To the OP, I'm sure many users here would appreciate the categorization not just of species type, but also by the size of the tank.

That'd definitely be useful too, I agree: however, revising this list took a turn for the complicated due to all the different suggested ways of sorting this list. Daniel*Swords has generously volunteered his time for this as well - but any other volunteers would be great too.

At this point I'm thinking perhaps some kind of a spreadsheet is in order for this - that way we can show multiple parameters that are useful, such as size, water temp & pH requirements, stocking & neighbor-friendliness info, etc. - instead of having one list showing all fish in a certain size range, then another separate list entirely showing what you can/can't put in the tank with them, you know?

Actually, not to rant but just to clarify, the 'species name' refers to both the genus and the specific epithet, most commonly incorrectly refered to as the 'species name'. A species name is comprised of two parts -the genus (the first part) and the specific epithet (the second part). I do not mean to rant but people throw around scientific verbage constantly and i just wanted to let people know of this distinction - even people who are well trained in the biological sciences misuse these terms.

Thanks agdavis for clearing that up! All very logical now that you mention it! After this, it'll be that much more easier for me to try to pass as a biologist.

Some more fishes (found in the thread):
Gertrude's Rainbow/ Gertrude Blue-eyes (Pseudomugil gertrudae)
Dwarf Red Bettas (Betta coccina, tussyae, rutilans, persephone, etc.)

Then in the link posted by Sarahpea above we can find:
Burmese Pink Neon Rasbora (Microrasbora rubescens)

Has anyone seen this site:

Miniature fishes for freshwater-aquariums

I dont think some of these are available in the US yet, might have to give it a while.

havent kept them, but they look awsome and stay small(1.5"). From what Ive read, they dont require the ammount of work most killis require for breeding I.E. removing the eggs for a set ammount of time.

I have a 1 Gallon Betta Bowl at the Office.
The office temperature is kept a constant 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Does this thread mean that each of these fish listed, I could keep in this Bowl 'instead' of the Betta?

Or to put it another way;
if I were to create another Bowl at the Office (1-2.5 gallons), I could use 1 of ANY of these fish?

No , most of these fish require at least a 5 gallon, or a 2g to themselves, but some you can put in bowls. A 5g tank realy isn't much bigger than a betta bowl. And not to expensive either. Also, I used to have a betta vase, but I could barely see anything but a blur in the rounded glass.

Also, most fish require something the Betta doesnt- airation. Bettas and a few other fish, like goldfish, have a gland (Larynth gland I believe) that allows them to take air from the surface instead of through the water, so filtration and circulation would be required over a Betta. HTH.

Hatchetfish should never be put in a nano. In the Amazon, they literally fly out of the water. Fishbase.org quote regarding Carnegiella strigata strigata: "Aquarium keeping: in groups of 5 or more individuals; may jump out of the aquarium; minimum aquarium size 80 cm".

Not true.

Bettas and other labyrinth fish, have an organ called the labyrinth that allows them to breathe atmospheric air, goldfish do NOT have the labyrinth organ. Goldfish should not be kept it bowls. It's already illegal to do so in Rome.
