That tank had Ember Tetra, Neons, Chili Rasbora, Sundadanio axelrodi (rasbora), Pygmy and Habrosus Cory and both RCS and Dwarf Crays.

RussellTheShihTzum oh! those Dario Darios are ADORABLE! I may end up getting some for my 6 gallon I am setting up! =O
would they get along with shrimp and schooling fish like Rasboras?

|RussellTheShihTzu||They occupy the bottom of the tank so are no problem.|

|blubird101||Very interesting. Have they been known to get along with bettas? I would think no since they are so territorial.|

They are wonderful. Just keep in mind they will not do well and will probably die unless you commit to feeding a variety of frozen and/or live.
I like Micro and Grindal worms. Micro are easiest to grow and feed. Also, frozen Daphnia, Mosquito larvae and Rotifers are good. I chop up Bloodworms and Brine shrimp. Bloodworms are fed sparingly because they tend to be more fatty. Some sell "Mini Bloodworms" that are really Mosquito larvae. That's what I buy.
Here is Rachael O'Leary's (aka Msjinkzd) discussion of Dario Dario/Scarlet Badis:

One of the neatest little fish ever are Dario Dario. They are tiny and fun to watch (about .75"). However, they only eat live or frozen foods. They are the reason I went from feeding pellets to live and a variety frozen a few years ago.
Dario like Java Moss or Subwassertang and are bottom dwellers. They are just too cute and so small you could have three in your 2.5 gallon or in the 5.5 with your Betta. I will be getting more when www.msjinkzd.com starts selling again.

|blubird101||Okay, I think I'll get my betta first and determine how docile he is with the snails. That should give me some time to get some more plants. I'll see if my local shops have any rasporas and look at the size. :) Thanks!|

|Rainbo||About the only fish that you could get away with are nano fish like raspbora. You'd need 6 of them to form a small school. Your tank would need to be heavily planted and you'd need to be prepared to move your betta back to the 2.5 gal if he decided to get territorial and go on a seek and destroy mission.|
