    What are some nice small schooling pink fish for a nano? I already know about Rasboras and Boraras. Anything else? Thanks.

    As long as they get comfortable to their home, they will colour up. Good food, loads of O2 (from plants) and plenty of cover from plants makes fish comfortable.

    At times they do. Observe the buggers (erythromicron) at CS. Got one tank full and they're in a tank with some fire gobies.

    When they're happy they get a little reddish but very far from pinkish. In fact I find pinkish fish to be hard to find.. perhaps some blind cave tetras? Those are white and pinkish all-year round.
