One of the most beautifully patterned nano fish in the aquarium hobby, the Celestial Pearl Danio, Galaxy Rasbora, or simply “CPD” as it is often known in the hobby originates in the shallow waters of Myanmar’s streams and lakes but are now commercially bred on a large scale. The Celestial Pearl Danio is a peaceful schooling fish ideal for smaller aquariums and is extremely popular with aquascapers and planted tank hobbyists due to its vivid colors and small adult size. Hardy and undemanding, they will readily accept most flake or small granulated foods.

The Celestial Pearl Danio is peaceful and easy to care for, as long as they live in stable water parameters with good water quality. They do best in tanks that have plant, rock, or driftwood that provides them with cover. We sell these fish in a school of 6 because they are known to do best in groups of 6 or more. Celestial Pearl Danios will form schools with each other and with all other types of danios, forming rainbows of motion throughout your aquarium.
