Notes

Celestial Pearl Danios, or CPD for short, are relatively new in the fishkeeping world.  They were discovered in the early 2000’s and were initially called Galaxy Rasboras or Fireworks Rasbora.  They’re super popular for their trout-like spotted bodies and bright orange fins.  For a fish that gets only about 3/4” in size, their distinct features really pop out in a community tank.  A bonus is that they can tolerate a wider range of water parameters making them easy to breed.
