Celestial Pearl Danio (Galaxy Rasbora)

The Celestial Pearl Danio (CPD) also known as the Galaxy Rasbora is one of the most popular nano fish available to hobbyists today. It is one of our favorite fish at Flip Aquatics as well. The CPD is striking in any planted aquarium with a unique look with vivid red fins and yellowish white spots on a bluish colored body.

Please Note: All fish shipments have a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when shipping wit Overnight (1 Day) option. All other options void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish. 

While the small size of the CPD might make it seem compatible with other fish of the same size, they are often very shy and can be easily out competed for food. It is recommended to pair this fish with bottom dwelling catfish or surface swimming fish for the best results.

The CPD reaches sizes between ½ inch to ¾ inch.

The scientific name for the CPD is Celestichthys margaritatus.

We feed our CPD’s a mix of frozen foods including daphnia, baby brine and cyclops. We occasionally feed them Northfin Veggie. They will accept live foods if prepared.

celestial Pearls a must have.

I received all 8 of the Celestial Pearl Danios alive and well. These are amazing fish that at first were shy at first but with in just a few days already learned when I walk up they come straight to the front in hopes of being fed. 100% a must have for a nano tank!
