Foo,

Nice find on the fish. Did you get it mixed in with the other danios? It is a Barred or Tiger Danio, Devario pathirana. Looks like a really cool fish. You might want to try and see if you can get more of them and make it a species tank. BTW they do get to 2.5 inches so a group my be a little too big for a mini M but who knows.

I love the look of tanks with glass accesories, they look very classy and clean. Your idea of the holes in the table is very nice too.
