Nice tank! I'm glad you got the harlequins, they are a nice little fish. I intended to buy 5 harlequins for my 10 gallon to go eith the other fish, but I got sold espe's rasbora, a smaller, rarer version. Yours are definately harlequins. :)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

The espei's are cute too! I'm happy for us, Maisy haha. I'm thinking of returning 3 of my harle's and repurchasing them again in 2-3 weeks. Since my tank isn't cycled, I read somewhere that introducing a full school can be detrimental during the cycle, and in the future of the tank in general.

A happy little rasbora clan. :)

I think you shouldn't bring them back, as since you've bought them, you might as well keep 'em. LOL Moving is pretty stressful on fish, so It's best to move as little as possible.

Hahaha I know. They look so much better as a full school. I probably will keep them, and just do water changes every few days. How much and how often do you feed your espei's? I fast my betta every Sunday, sometimes Sunday and Monday. I'm wondering if it's safe to not feed them one/two days out of the week so they can have the same feeding schedule as my current and future betta.
