Do some fishexperts here know if there is a riverfish released by Yujin or Ikimon (Kitan nature techni colour) that would match in scale as a prey of the Giant waterbug (Lethocerus deyrollei) Yujin released in their insects of Japan line?

I am constructing a riverside diadorama and think this would be great to feature.
To beetle or not to beetle.

I am not 100% sure of the size of the figure (you didn't mention the size or scale) but I'm thinking the Yujin rosy bitterling or 3-spined stickleback would probably work.

Some, like the ricefish or dace might also work as smaller individuals (or generic minnows) but again, depends on the size of the waterbug figure.

@sbell ;The waterbug is scale 1:1.
Thank you very much for the tip!!
Got the 3-spined stickleback for about 5 euro included shipping at Ebay!

Excellent--it should be about right. And that price sounds about right too!
