Hello All,

Would like to share the pic of the tiny little boraras maculatus in my 1ft cube. :)

Had a few Glass Gobies too before getting the Boraras:

Hope you all like it.

Glass gobies are little challenging to keep them until you familiarize them with the food. I was lucky to have them eat pellets, but they'd eat only the ones that they are moving. Later I got to know that they prefer live feed. They did great with frozen blood worms (red ones). Size wise, they're little bigger than the Boraras.
Here you can see the size comparison with otocinclus.

THey dont school regularly, only while spooked.

Yeah.. crushed pellets.. Until I got my hands on bloodworms. Unfortunately, lost them due to co2 poisoning. Stupid regulator failed :(
