As to staying home to wait for my fish, I'm lucky that I could probably swing that since I work for my husband.  Still might be a good idea to think of another excuse for staying at home....
Thanks for the tip!

How do they differ from other Danios?

For starters they are not nearly as active, or hyperactive as the case may be.  They usually prefer the lower levels of the tank.  They prefer not to eat from the surface of the water and normally will not out compete other tank mates at feeding time.  They are often quite shy.  This is particularly a problem with "wild caught" fish.  When it comes to spawning, they are not typical egg scatters like most Danios.

What do you think of a school of CPDs with a school of Rosy Loaches (which supposedly share the same microhabitat) in an unheated 10 gallon with some Java fern and Java moss?

Sorry I'm no help when it comes to the loaches, never kept any.  A group of CPD's will do very nicely in an unheated 10 gallon.  They are very fond of java moss as a spawning site, and java fern typically does very well in low light and cool conditions.

It's been my experience that if you give them lots of hiding spaces they will be out more often as it helps to make them feel secure.  If after your best efforts they are still to shy, a suitable dither fish would be my next choice.

Actually, Thatpetplace carries the Burmese rosey loach, but not the CPDs.  There is a breeder of CPDs who is a member of the forum, and I would likely get them from him.
