    These Tanichthys micagemmae (Vietnamese mountain minnows) were a group of 20 in my previous 120cm 'scape. I replaced them and all the other fish with a shoal of 60 harlquins that better suits the simplicity of my current aquascape.

    They're are nice alternative to the popular WCMMs with nicer colouration, IMO, and they do better with slightly warmer water than the temperate white clouds.

    They're very nice looking. The red seems so much more vibrant than the chinese sp. I like the red on the tail, with the spot in the middle, sort of a peacock looking mark.

    I love the the White Clouds as you can tell from my avatar :D But these are just as pretty, do they have the same temprement?

    I reckon they're prettier! :p

    Very similar in behaviour. I forget to mention, they stay smaller than WCMM too.
