Newly collected fish: microrasbora sp. "Galaxy"

These finally showed up here. EXPENSIVE ($9.99 for such a tiny fish) but well worth spending $20 for a pair to take some pics. This one is almost an inch big, TL:







Here is a bonus shot of a reg. Microrasbora that I got with them, it's not really acclimated yet, much more red in a few days, about 1/2 inch fish:

I think Frank's Aquarium-The Freshwater Crustacean Farm carries them.

$80 for 8 shipped, or something like that, right? Cheaper (in Los Angeles, they're about $14.99 each) if you want many of them.

epic, in the valley about $10 each, better if you buy more so pretty comparable. Aquarium City on Sherman Way has 'em. So does Tat's in Ventura County but a bit more.

Excellent Pics, they are gonna be the new must have fish.
My LFS has them on order and is waiting for when they come in.
I'm on the list of people he'll contact when they come in.

Hope they are not that expensive when they arrive. hope they will be around 2GBP each.

Bought a bag of these guys. Check the SFBAAPS forum if you're a member on there for the group buy price.

What do you feed your microrasbora? I was told by the LFS to crunch up a flake. It seams to be working but do you have any other suggestion?
