I think there are two issues: some of those Brachygobius species do get
larger than 1" and the smaller ones can only eat a fry in one bite, but
there's no law that says you have to eat a fish in a single bite..... I've
heard this from several (well, two) people, so I'm steering clear of
putting the wee bumblebees in with the nearly as wee blueeyes.
