    I am thinking about setting up an ADA Mini-M Cube Glass. Right now I'm trying to figure out which fish to use and where I can get them.

    Here are a couple of my inspiration shots:
    Tank #1

    Tank #2

    Tank #3

    Tank #4

    Tank #5

    Can anyone tell what any of the fish are in these five pics? I like how they are well proportioned compared to the size of the Mini-M

    ...hmm, sorry about the small pics. If you go here: http://www.aquascapingworld.com/gallery/index.php?c=2&u=3493 you can get the pictures to full size.

    From my limited knowledge, I think I saw a Rummynose tetra in one? But in general, it seems to be either tetras or rasboras.

    Great selection of Amano tanks. I took the liberty and edited the above post to show larger images of the shots.

    Clicking on the pop up version of your recently uploaded photo (current view), you can right click on the photo and copy the larger photo's location URL, and then paste the URL in the tags. That will ensure you post the larger size photo you intended to show.

    Tank #1: Cardinal tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)

    Tank #2: ??

    Tank #3:
    Glowlight rasboras (Trigonostigma hengeli) identified by the upside orange Nike "swoosh", and grows smaller than regular Harlequin rasboras.

    Tank #4:
    ??

    Tank #5:
    ??

    Not sure about the other ones. Who wants to play next? :bling:

    hello!
    i think for the first one it can be neon simulans(green neon).i saw that amano use it a lot because it stay more little than the cheirodon axelrodi.
    the second one i'm not sure but i will say hyphessobricon amandae.
    the third i will say like stripeygourmai it's rasbora espei.
    next it's borraras brigitae.
    and the last it's like popondetta gertrudae
    hope it's good ,correct me if i'm wrong.
    thanks
    david.

    After looking at tank 1 and 3 again, I'll go with what Stripeygourmai and Seniordavid indicated too. I'm slightly on the fence with #3, and still think the Nike "swoosh" a little more prevalent to ID it as a Glowlight rasboras (Trigonostigma hengeli) . Yet the description of Rasbora espei states that black part is more prevalent and more rectangular in nature. So I guess it may be a afterall. ;)

    That means I'm 0 for 5! :(

    Tank #1: Green Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)

    Tank #2: Hyphessobricon amandae

    Tank #3:
    T-Bone rasboras (Rasbora espei)

    Tank #4:
    Mosquito rasboras(Borraras brigittae)

    Thanks for the great help guys!

    Now another basic question...

    Where could I get any of these fish?

    I'll have to look on LiveAquaria again, but I don't remember them having any of these fish and Franks is not shipping for the winter...

    Once again, thanks for the help.

    Ok, scratch previous post, I found one of them in LiveAquaria.

    But if anyone knows of any other sources for the other fish, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
