Re: species ID



Hi all.,
  I also found what appears to be an Oryzias species at my LFS. They were
tiny (about 3/4 inch) and mixed in with a much larger proportion of 3/4 inch
Rasbora urophthalma. I think they were wild but can't be sure. Any guesses
at what the Oryzias might be??. I think I'll pick up a few ($1 each) and see
what develops.
