Celestial Danio - IN STORE ONLY


The Celestial Pearl Danio is a recently discovered freshwater fish first shown to the world in 2006. They were originally found occupying small ponds in Myanmar. Back then, they were given the scientific name Celestichthys margaritatus.

Due to their unique looks, these fish were highly sought-after in the aquarium industry. This quickly led to a rapid decline in the wild population and put the whole species in danger. Luckily, in 2008, breeders were able to start breeding the fish in captivity. As a result, the wild population has since stabilized.

Around the same time, scientists discovered that the fish was actually part of the Danio family (and not technically a rasbora species). Thus, they were given the new scientific name of Danio margaritatus.

Celestial Pearl Danios, also known as Galaxy Rasboras, are now an extremely popular aquarium fish that can add tons of natural color to your tank. Like any other fish species, proper care is a must if you want to help these beauties reach their full potential.
