Spike tailed paradise fish. I had a breeding pair, both jumped out of the tank, but I found one of their babies. Then he became adult and jumped out of the tank even though I had low water. Other than that nice personality of a little fish and they have nice colors.
Guess suicide can be genetic!

Anyone familiar with drapefin barbs?
Or lineatus barbs? Or studfish? All interesting mini monsters.

Those bettas are spendy. I just saw a pair for sale a little while back. $224.99. Ouch. Very cool, but dang.
Yes they are expensive and super sensitive, one small change and they just fade away into oblivion

They may or may not also explode into a conflagration if mishandled

This is my next favorite:
phenocogrammus aurentius

You are killing me with those. Ive just looked into both of those myself over the last couple weeks. I have been looking for something to go into a 75 with the puffer. I've "decided" to put him in a 40b with a couple petricolas and maybe some livebearer "cool looking guppy ". Maybe.....lol
