Hi,
I am sorry, but I dont know the name of the Dwarf Rasboras. All I know is my Rianbows have just eaten them all. So I wont be shifting them.

Also, i would have second thoughts about the harlequins and the red lines in a river tank. harlequins are very tolerant fish, and naturally come from a wide variety of habitats, but not as fast flowing as the fish that generally inhabit the hillstreams, and they do inhabit relatively still waters.
Yes your thoughts aline with mine.
So I wont bothe doing a river type filtation. I will try that one-day.

Also to answer your question about the Golden Zebra Loaches.
I dont know the full name of them.
