    Have you tried the third spieces the Glowlight or Slender Rasbora? I have 11 in my 75 gal. They are much more shy than the other two but will school with the harleys, this may be because they are much smaller almost mico-bora size.
    I still like them not as much as the other two.

    I'm not actually sure. There are 3 commonly mistaken "Harleys". The true Harlequin, and then T. Espei and T. Hengeli.
    I got given the Hengeli ones by accident when I order Harleys, not sure what the common name is. I ended up making a fuss and getting the shop to replace them.

    I was refering to the Espei.

    Like you I ordered Harleys from Foster and Smith and got 2 Hengeli's which I recieved credit for. I became attached to them more than I thought so the next time the LFS store recieved some (they still think they were Harleys) I bought a half dozen.

    xD well at least someone liked them. They hid all the time in my tank, even though there were 12 of them. Have proper harleys now and I love the way they just float back and forth in a loose school.

    Ridiculous how so many people can't tell them apart -- they're clearly different! Not even the same shape!

    Harlequin rasbora. I would not put over three species in the tank myself.

    Glowlight Rasbora and Lambchop Rasbora are both sold as False harlequin rasbora. It is possible to tell the species apart if you look closely. The Harlequin rasbora is higher (stalkier) than the other two species. It has a pink to bright red colour. The black spot is located close to the triangle on the back of the body and the spot as a blue hue to it. The Harlequin rasbora also has a larger triangle then the other two species. The Lambchop rasbora has a bronze pink colour. The Glowlight rasbora is butter coloured and has a faint orange line above its black spot. This line is not present in the Lambchop rasbora.

    I can see the confusion with these fish especially when they are not in a tank side by side.

    The harlequin rasbora has a very distinct body shape from other rasboras hence the name T. heteromorpha which literally translates to "different shape."

    Yeah, I could tell as soon as I got them they weren't the real-deal. They're both smaller that harleys too.

    Looks like my lfs store doesn't have killifish so I have to change my plan. What would be a good addition to these?

    12x Cardinal Tetra

    6x Spotted Cory Catfish

    4x Bolivian Rams

    There's a number of things that could work. Why don't you go to your LFS and have a look at what they have, then write down some you like and come back here and do the research.

    Or you could just increase the numbers of what you already have.

    ... I'd suggest Harlequin Rasbora.
