Thanks Shane. Are the Barbus spp. you have collected in Africa very similar to Puntius spp. externally???

Shane wrote:Not at all. Most African barbs have the longer, minnow-type body shape. There are also very few with interesting colors or patternings. Hence the lack of exports. Nearly all spp are either an overall brown to silver with a dark lateral stripe or brown to silver with spots along the lateral line. This makes them difficult to distinguish to sp level.-Shane
Won't the background cut off whatever little light trickles in???

I think with a tiny Anabantoid in there (parosphromenus or so) the tank will be even better.....
you wouldn't say that if you ever saw adult colored-up Rayamas christyi.
