dario + histionica??

As I mentioned in a post about two weeks ago, I "saved" a 1" dario from a Petsmart. Presently, it is in a 10gal with some dithers and three very small schisturas. Today, I found a histrionica slightly smaller than the dario, in a tank with some big darios. I thought it was a dario at first, it was yellow, but it had the "Y" under the dorsal fin, and a head that was more blunt. It looked very similar to the last histrionica picture in the species index. I was thinking about buying it to keep my dario company since the dario is too small to put in with my others. Plus that tank has as many fish as I care to put in it. Would the two get along? I know darios tend to be more aggressive. I hate for it not to have any other botias to hang with. Right now, he tends to ignore the schisturas, but will swim with the dither fish.
