Aren't they danios ? You can look for sellors that sell CPDs; they might have them as well. I have 1 stray from a sellor that sold me CPDs; they are quite shy, and have similar requirements to CPDs

Hi fishyfishy101,

It is indeed a member of the Danio family as mentioned, it is a pretty fish.

Keep in mind that they are tiny. Adults grow to arouth 3/4" long.
Celestial pearl danios are a more commonly known related fish. They will interbreed if mixed.

Very cool fish, my planted nano tank has a few of them in it. They remind me of humming birds the way the "flit" around and then hover before flitting off again.

Lovely fish--and I love finding new nano options--but I could never keep these. The red over the gill area would leave me constantly thinking they'd torn a gill plate.

I kept 11 of these in a 17 gallon and while really attractive they tend to be very skittish and like to hide in the plants. It was them,3 ottos and a colony of fire red shrimp. Edit- although I had 11 they very loosely stayed grouped together most of the time. I wonder if I had other fish They would have been more out in the open. they survived for close to 10 months until I sold them and broke my tank down.
