Endlers vs. Emerald Dwarf Rasboras
Howdy! I'm getting ready to do a makeover on my 5 gallon NPT.
I'd like to stock with a small group (5 -6) of nano fish, OR a couple (2 - 3) nano fish with a female betta. She seems friendly, but I have a backup plan if she turns mean.
After considering many factors (tap water = liquid rock, tank = in an office, live food = out of the question, frozen food = questionable, fish = have to survive weekends unattended), I figured endlers livebearers where my best bet.
Then I found one of the local fish stores has Emerald Dwarf Rasboras, and I'm seriously considering it. Research shows they like hard water and will eat commercial food (or can be trained to).
I like the uniqueness of the rasboras, but it sounds like the endlers are hardier and more outgoing.
Anyone who's kept one or both of these weigh in?
