One of the fish on my 'bucket list' is available to me this week... Pethia bandula ($15), the 'dwarf ruby barb' from Sri Lanka. This is the bright red barb the Paul Loiselle showed us a picture of that is also on the CARES list. But to get them I have to fill a box. Here are the fish that are on my possibles (names in color are links): Pethia (Puntius) erythromycter - the Burmese lipstick barb Eirmotus octozona - this is a tough one... a real challenge Betta coccina - one of the 'red wine' Betta sp. This is probably the easiest and least expensive of the group. Betta falx - one of the fish in the B. picta group. A relatively easy mouth brooder that was around a lot a few years ago, but I have not seen them in a while Betta foerschi ($50/pr)- another of my 'bucket list' fish, but lower priority. Danio nigrofasciatus ($2)- because I like dwarf danios Devario sondhii - Looks like a nice fish for planted tanks Danionella priapus ($2)- this is one of the smallest of all vertebrate animals. Almost glass-clear and about 1 cm long. There are a few species, and who knows if this one will be what it is advertised as being... but the price point is attractive. Other species in the genus are listed at prices that would retail for $3-$4/fish... If these arrive in good shape they would be less than $2. Microrasbora rubescens - this is one of the Lake Inle species. Very nice in planted nano tanks Rasbora lacrimula - the best pics I have seen of this fish depict a silverish fish with bright red fins Paedocypris progenetica ($8)- another of the very small, glass 'danio' fish like the genus Danionella... but this one has a blue eye Devario (Inlecyprus) auropurporeus ($6)- the Lake Inle Tiger danio. I have a few, but would like some more. People who come to my fish often point this species out to ask what it is. Very pretty fish. Indostomus crocodilus ($10)- very cool fish! I spawned them a few years ago. They lay eggs inside pvc pipe like a goby. They are related to sticklebacks. I might have to get these just to have a species to qualify for the 'other' category for Ultimate Breeder Macrognathus zebrinus - a very pretty spiny eel. These would be 3-4" juveniles of a species that probably maxes out at about 10" in an aquarium. I am convinced that these smaller spiny eels should be spawnable in aquariums. M. zebrinus would be a good candidate to work with due to its small size. Hemigrammopetersius caudalis ($12)- yellow-tailed Congo tetra - These would be tank-raised fish. I pretty, smaller African tetra that is very breedable. Aspidoras sp "ARAGUAIA" - one of the cory-like catfish from South America, but these are tank raised fish. I figure on 6-8 species to fill a box. Not a big order this week, as I still have a lot of fish hanging around... but I really want those P. bandula barbs.
