A species of Pangio has been discovered that is just 20mm fully grown /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" />

The article can be seen here

Excerpt from article:

QUOTE
The tiny eel-shaped fish from Laos grows to just over 20mm and was named Pangio longimanus by the Museum's ichthyologist (fish expert) Dr Ralf Britz and Dr Maurice Kottelat of the National University Singapore.

Pangio longimanus means 'long hand' and was given to the species because the males have very long pectoral fins that stretch to 16% of their body length - the average for the Pangio genus is 10%.

These would be perfect for any nano tank, I must have some /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />
