In order to help curve the destruction of this gorgeuos little creature's natural habitat, i suggest those of you who care to avoid, and boycott the sale of wild caught celestial danios/galaxy rasboras. The overcollecting and collecting surge of this species has wrecked havoc upon this helpless little fish, and if something is not done, It will be extinct from the wild, something no one wants to be responsible for.
For those of you who had no idea about the decline of their habitat and purchased wild species, i do not blame, look down upon, or anything on you, but please, please, do all you can to breed this wonderfull creature, and remember that without us, there may not be the gorgeuos creature you see before you today.
See, as most of you know, everything is about supply and demand, and if there is less demand, there will be less need for a "quick fix supply". so,if we try our hardest, despite price, to purchase only captive bred specimens, maybe in a few years we will be able to !!!!! Conservatively!!!!!!!! take a few species from the wild to strengthen bloodlines, but until something is done about the habitat destruction by collectors, i refuse to buy WC specimens, and i encourage you to do the same.
Please, follow the footsteps of your favorite aussie naturalist and help to conserve a beutifull creature.
