The Celestial Pearl Danio (CPD) aka Galaxy Rasbora is one of the most beautiful fish in the hobby.
They are an easy fish to care for and work well in a small tank. They work well in groups of three or more.
They live happily in a 40L that is fully furnished with vegetation. They live happily in the shallows.
How many years do they live?
CPDs lives for 3-5 years. When we get them they are usually around 3-6 months old.
How big do they grow?
They grow to a maximum size of 2.5cm (1 inch)
What are the condition that you get them?
We get our CPDs from Australian Breeders that produces these for the Australian Market. They are not wild caught.
What is the history of these fish in Australia?
These fish came to Australia back in 2014 when they were just described. The wild caught specimens were quite strong in comparison and Australia obtained them by the thousands. However we were fortunate whereby the breeders that are experienced in keeping and breeding Danios got hold on them and started breeding them in Victoria and Queensland.
Ever since then, CPDs are considered to be a seasonal staple and rightly so. They are a beautiful fish.
