Also when you get them home they'll be as clear as the plastic bag you brought them home in. They'll need time to get their color back ussually within a week...

it's the

Phoenix Rasbora
Boraras merah

that you want to watch out for they don't get as bright red...

i really want

Zebra Rasbora
Danio erythromicron

also

Sparrow Rasbora
Boraras uropthalmoides

they're cool too

Hey Thomas.

My Fishy Friends (Couch) may still have some. Chilis are/were on his list. If he can confirm they are the same batch as mine, then they are the same ones that are in my 15 gallon tank.

Good luck on the hunt.

Just made a trip down to IPU in burnaby..... Looked around and also asked some staff.... They don't have any chili rasboras..
Only thing they have is pork chop rasboras.

Really disappointing.

TN23,
They are listed as Mosquito Rasboras. Truthfully I have never heard the name Chilli Rasboras. Simple mistake. They could have phoned me to confirm if you had asked them. Sorry you are disappointed but they are there. Top tank bare bottom by the packing station. Tried to help you, sorry it backfired.

^hmm I asked a guy and the only Rasboras they had there are the pork chops he said.

I guess its time for me to go back again...

Thanks for clarifying I'll ask that guy again. Shorter Asian gentlemen.

That was Chris you were speaking to. They are in the same tank as the Zebra snails right by the packing station and they are labeled as Mosquito Rasbora. They are on a blue background so they do not show up very well and are tiny as you know.
