    Norman's lampeye. Actually another kind of killi. Schooling species, likes quite a bit of plant cover. Can be surprisingly active for something so small when they're happy.

    it's very interesting to read about this killi fish... if you look at my first post in this thread, the lady thought the blue eyed rainbow was a killi!... from a different continent, but at least she kinda knew what she was talking about!

    sorry to bring this back from the dead again, but...

    I grabbed a new unknown pair of fish today... They're less than an in inch long with lots well defined orange/black vertical stripes.

    What really got my attention was the second "eye" at the tail that's black and outlined in gold, just like their actual eye.

    The guys at the store didn't know what they were and the owner didn't answer his phone, so they sold me the last couple for $8.95.

    Any ideas?... Thanks in advance!

    To answer your question its an Emerald Dwarf Rasbora



    One idea is that you stop bringing things home when you have no idea what they are.. IE: What if you cannot meet their care requirements, Or in the worst case it bites you hard.
    ..Just saying.

    Take a look at the food requirements [Live and frozen], Suggested pH ["This species will not do well in acidic water."] & the suggested numbers to keep to prevent aggression issues [20+] at the link posted above.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Thanks, 850! This forum never lets me down.

    I appreciate the warning, but I don't bring home anything unknown that isn't already in a planted community tank with the same and/or similar peaceful fish like I already have. You're probably right that it's a little risky, but at least this time I don't think I'll lose a finger!

    I kid, of course. I really appreciate the help.

    -Dustin
