I'd like to add profiles for a few of these as I have some pictures but lord knows how I'm going to identify them without locality details. Should I just list them as 'sp. 1', 'sp. 2', etc.? They all look identical to me! /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />

Here's what we've got; the one in the second pic was coming into the UK as D. sp 'neon green' I think and the third is the one Pete and Paul have been breeding. Gents I'm not even sure if this is your photo so I'll wait for your say-so before using it outside of the forum.

Finally Gustav if you're still alive how are you getting on with your D. dracula?

I'm still alive and my D. dracula har still alive, or most of them anyway. One recently died, it had an extremly bloated belly and the fish turned into a pale white for the last couple of days. Pretty weird. So that leaves me with 6-7 fish that are in a mature tank full with plants (mostly mosses). But I haven't seen any fry or any signs of breeding behaviour.

Can't help you much with the rest though, I do know though that Mike Noren said that D. sp. "Neon Green" (or the fish he bought under that name anyway) were the fish that got described as D. dracula.

Edit: Turns out Mike's fish were sold by the name "Fluorescent green" not "Neon green", but I'm guessing it's tthe same fish.
Here's a post from his blog where he mentions the name change (in case you feel like translating /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />):

I love Google Translate. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Thanks Gustav, that's really useful. I think the fish at Bolton (third pic) might be the same one??

Third pic isn't of our fish, it was one we got permission to use at a time when images of Danionella were few and far between.

Aye, still breeding away. We have got a picture of the fish we have, but it's a .tif and I can't attach it to a post.
