Are you considering a small centerpiece fish? If so I keep thinking how cool a scarlet baldis pair would look in that tank... 😁
I have another tank with a small group of celestial pearl danios. When I feel the plants are lush enough for them to hide in, I’ll go ahead and put them in there 😋

although, knowing they are really reclusive and shy fish and for the most part only come out during feeding. I really wish I could get them to be LESS shy because the males have beautiful and brilliant color to them..

I wanted to keep only three species in this tank, but maybe I’ll consider adding a odd ball or two to add some activity. I’ve never seen scarlet baldis in any of my local fish stores. I agree, they look amazing!
