Can you please help me to identify the fish? I saw this one today in LPS. Unfortunately, I don't know it's name. The fish ir small, maybe one inch long (they said it's adult). Color - silver or yellowish. I've spent a couple of hours looking for it in the net - all for naught Smile
Here is approximate pciture:

Er ... it could be a thousand things, but what jumped into my head first was Neolamprologus brichardi, although at 1" a brichardi would be nowhere near full-grown (but pet stores are often wrong about these things).

Hey, LittleMousling
Nope, it's not Neolamprologus brichardi. Neolamprologus brichardi is not so slender.

Although it doesn't look exactly like your drawing the first thing that popped into m y mind was the featherfin rainbow, Iriatherina werneri. Take a look at the second photo on this page and see if it is close to the fish you saw,

wow, thanks! Indeed, it's Iriatherina werneri.
What do you think about keeping some of these in 5 gal (20l) together with sparkling gourami or in 7.5 gal (30l) with blue neon tetras?

My experience with featherfins would tend to make me hesitate to put them in with other fish in any tank. They have exceptionally tiny mouths and can be a bit shy when it comes to feeding. So I would really recommend a species tank for them, or at least put them in a tank where they won't have a lot of competition for food in the mid to upper levels of the tank.
