    Anyone got any experience with these?

    Saw them in seahorse aquariums and they're bloody tiny.

    I had some maculatus, they were like mini danios, active and very nicely coloured too, the size means you'd get a huge shoal even in a small tank :)

    They were silver/grey in colour and very very tiny. Like less than a cm.

    They may have been young ?

    €2.99 each still quite expensive for such a tiny tiny thing!

    I was thinking maybe they'd be shrimp safe because they're so small ?

    I'd be more worried of the shrimp eating the fish ;) (Joke!).

    sound like boraras micros or the newly described b, naevus. micros need soft , slightly acidic water in which to thrive.
