Against merging. The two articles should remain separate due to the special nature of Paedocypris progenetica. It's currently the smallest known fish in the world, and deserves its own article.--188.8.131.52 18:13, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
- Whether P.progenetica is the smallest fish is debatable - see here for description of Photocorynus spiniceps (6.2 mm) Lejean2000 17:10, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
P. progenetica is described as the smallest species. P. spiniceps has small male individuals but the females reach 50.5 mm, 5-6 times larger than the largest documented P. progenetica - see  for comparison of the two species side by side.
What is the literal meaning of Paedocypris progenetica? Latin anyone? --anirudh 16:13, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
The explanation from the paper describing this species is this:
Paideios (Greek), children; Cypris (Greek), Venus, common suffix for cyprinid genera; gender feminine.
Progenetica, progenetic; an adjective.
