Celestial Pearl Danios

Recommended Posts

jayc

Just bought myself some Celestial Pearl Danios !

12 of them. 4 males and the rest females.

Unfortunately, no photos yet. They are super shy and have not coloured up yet.

Love these little fellas. They are so interesting. Same parameters as my shrimp tanks, but it's not going into any tank with shrimps, yet.

Good for you and look forward to seeing them soon. I have had them in the past but they were a bit too shy, I may not have had sufficient  numbers so rarely saw them but they were very pretty when I got to see them!

Unfortunately I placed my order for the mosquito and dwarf spotted rasboras a few days too late, and we went into lockdown over here so I am going to have to wait a while for those, would have been nice to have them here, but the reality is lockdown doesn't affect me personally at all being home 24/7 anyway.

What size will the tank be, I have ordered 6+6 and they are going into 35L tank, I may have too many? I allowed for a couple of deaths!

The CPD are in a 3 ft tank, shallow tank, about 80L.

It's heavily planted, so they have heaps of places to hide. Maybe too much actually.

I will try.

They are super timid at the moment. Any movement in front of the tank, and they dart of to hid.

I bought them from https://nanotanksaustralia.com.au if you want to place an order. 6 for $30.

And they had quite a few when I was there. Best to check with them if they can ship in these times of lockdown.

      That all sounds great. If you are worried about water changes, there probably is no need, in a tank of that size with so few shrimps, and being newly set up, it will be fine to just leave the water changes for a while anyway! Hopefully you will soon have shrimplets to watch in the tank in lockdown! Simon

      That was a popetpop aquarium air bio filter. It goes by many names. If you search for "aquarium air bio filter" you will find it. https://www.amazon.com/Mironey-Driven-Filter-Sponge-Aquarium/dp/B08F7HF4LY/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=aquarium+air+bio+filter&qid=1618815113&sr=8-8 OR https://www.amazon.com/JZHBEI-Driven-Filter-Aquarium-Breeding/dp/B08NGN4XW6/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=aquarium+air+bio+filter&qid=1618815113&sr=8-13   However, these are not very efficient compared to the double filters like these ...  https://www.amazon.com/Hygger-Aquarium-Sponges-Submersible-Salt-Water/dp/B07RFL4JMM/ref=pd_di_sccai_3?pd_rd_w=GdZGR&pf_rd_p=c9443270-b914-4430-a90b-72e3e7e784e0&pf_rd_r=EPWQB6HAJ2415WQB0JW9&pd_rd_r=53d5601e-2d0e-479b-925f-785187769910&pd_rd_wg=rbF6X&pd_rd_i=B07RFL4JMM&psc=1

      What filter is it? It seems that the link doesn't work. Is it Polar Aurora?

      Well guys, thanks for your help. Just a small update. It seems that dosing the tank with oxytetracycline worked like a charm. Haven't had a single death since then, and all shrimps have grown so much! At one point I had 5 berried shrimps! Some have given birth, one molted and lost shrimps, but all good! Look at them feasting and munching!
