Cardinal Tetras require a more experienced fish keeper.  They’re very sensitive to water changes and require softer to neutral waters.  They’re able to reach 2” in size and the red & blue markings run the full length of their body.  General rule is 2 gallons per fish. 10 Gallon tank at a minimum, but push for 20 or more for healthy and happy fish.

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.
