    DefaultTiny fish for 5.5 gal aquascape?

    What are some good, small, vibrant background fish for a 5.5 aquascape and where to buy? I was thinking galaxy rasboras but I'm not sure where I could get them here. I'm also planning to have cherry shrimp.
    Heres the tank:

    Boraras Brigittae. They really brighten up in a nicely planted tank.

    I wouldn't put any sort of shoaling fish in a tank that small... The whole point of getting them is to watch them swim, right? What fun is it to watch them swim around in circles all day?

    Scarlet badis could work though, or a single Betta, or you could do an awesome shrimp-only tank.... There are a lot more than cherry shrimp out there.

    I suggest Sundadanio axelrodi (aka blue/red/green Axelrod rasbora). I believe Canadian Aquatics or Fantasy Aquatics should have them in stock.

    Best regards,
