I got a couple of "silver halfbeaks" well that is what the shop called them


I looked in my book and thought they might be pusilla sumatrana (Sumtra Halfbeak)

here are pics of pusilla sumatrana (Sumtra Halfbeak) and it looks like my new fish



so far they eat regular fish foods and spend all of their time just under the waters surface, but they look pretty cool.

has anyone had any experience with this species, or even halfbeaks as they are new to me

I think your little halfbeaks are cute I don't think I have seen them in real life yet.

My little brother has kept a pair of them: these fish are life-bearers, grow just over 2", are pretty easy-going towards other fish (although keeping more than one male in tank can cause fights over females), eat flakes and other small food items, and can easily jump out of their tank when spooked...
