Re: species ID

If it is   Oryzias javanicus then I believe the AKA site has a slide that I 
took for slide sale program.  I am sure it is terrible quality considering 
how many times it was copies, but it will give you the general body shape 
which clearly distinguishes it fro Procatopus or Aplocheilicthys of the 
other small lampeye group.

The thin lines help me think it may be a member of Oryzias
