ok, i know you keep d. roseus. I recently picked up 8 cuties, thinking they were roseus. however, when i checked fishbase, i came across a quandry. the images they had of pearls were very similar. however, searching showed unsimiliarity. needless to say, i'm just frustrated, and want a positive id. lol. how large are your danios? these guys i have are easily 1.5" TL. that puts them over the 3.7cm fishbase claims, though fishbase is known to be wrong. the barbels look longer than roseus should have, but not as long as the pearls should have.

they are beautiful fish, though for now, super skittish.

btw, the lfs claimed them to be "purple passion danios". but this one is known for their 'fun' common names, lol.

taking pics of dithers is indeed a challenge, lol:
