Celestial Pearl Danio

I'm new and I have just started getting my tank set-up and have noticed these guys aren't in any LFS. Are they hard to find? I have never gone the mail order route and don't want to do that unless I have to. Pet Co did mention to me awhile back that they could order things not in stock so I'll check with them.

Just curious if anyone has them, has seen them for sale, etc.

My LFS has them but not very often. They're not common but not rare by any means

Thanks for the link. York PA is only an hour or so north of here.

I had to order my group and got a great deal from tedsfishroom.com. I saw them in a store over an our away and they wanted like 13 bucks a pair! When I saw that mail order seemed much more worth it. I think I paid like 3.50 or so each.

I'd go this route if you can't find them nearby since she's an active forum member/sponsor. I've got them near where I live for as cheap as $4 each and I've seen them as high as $10 each, so their price seems to vary a lot. They are really cool fish though. I have over half a dozen CPDs and really enjoy them.

If your in the midwest:

I also had good experiences with Sean Ko (aka soup12). I bought some ramshorn snails from him and know he breeds CPD's. He is also in MN. http://www.minnfish.com/forum/viewto...p?f=12&t=38202


Ted Judy of tedsfishroom.com - He has a regular column in Tropical Fish Hobbist magazine. I believe he is in WI.

Personally, unless your picking up livestock, I'd wait until we're out of this polar freeze.

Sometimes if an LFS doesn't stock them they might be able to order them with their next order. A lot of LFS just stock what sells well but can get other stuff if requested.

Sean lives about 15 minutes from me. He is a super nice guy.
