Danionella sp.

I haven't had any fish for uhm, several years now. I've been thinking about getting some small rasboras for a while, but I've never found Sundadanio axelrodi when I've searched for them, they have always been out of stock just then. Maybe it was faith.

Now I am a proud owner of a fry sized Danionella sp. shoal. They reach about 10-12 millimeters and are amongst the smallest freshwater fish in the world. They are really cool, everything is see-through, even the intestines (easy to see if they have eaten and what they have eaten).

Sorry about the bad photo, I need to stop taking photos in the middle of the night (I have the flu and I can't sleep) without extra flash, the on board one doesn't help much in these circumstances.



I'll try taking better ones tomorrow.

Oh, and hi all, sorry for being quiet for so long. I just haven't had much to tell, nothing new or pretty in my tanks.

Thanks.

I myself have always been fascinated by glass catfish and other weirdos like that. These are just perfect for my taste. From this photo you can see that the fish has first eaten green food and then red.

I'll try to take a photo of some of them together tomorrow. They are surprisingly bold, swimming around the tank following each other pretty nicely. Makes me wish I had a large tank with 100 or 200 of these. They would look really cool like that since they seem to be a good shoaling species.

pretty cool. I know I can't find something like that by me.
I'm assuming they're they only fish in your tank because they're the right size to fit in most fishes mouths.
And do they breed pretty easily?

Where did you get them?

Here's some info for people curious...

Not sure if its the same one but they all must be very similar.
