I've been thinking of getting Celestial Pearl Danios (formerly called Galaxy Rasbora for some reason). I've never seen them at Petco/Petsmart, or my LFS, but there's a local pet store called All Pets Club, and they have their fish inventory online for all four locations in my state. They don't list the Celestial Pearl danios, but they have like 3 different types of danios. One of them is called Purple Passion (Danio Roseus). I've never heard of these, but pictures I've seen are very pretty. If I can't find the Celestial Pearl danios, then I'm thinking of getting a large school of these.
Does anyone have experience with them? Are they as fast and active as zebra danios (I already have 6 of those)? I'll be putting them in a 55 gallon tank. The only thing is that I suspect that my female bettas ate 3 of my neon tetras recently
(I never found the bodies, and they may have been weak/dead already). But anyway, the tetras are pretty slow and they just kind of "la-la" around. But I don't think Danios are a likely target for my bettas because they're so fast. They're smaller than neons but so fast I don't think my bettas will try to eat them. So if the Purple passion danios are fast and active like the zebra danios, I'd like to get some. Anyone have experience with them?
