Galaxy Rasbora

Call for Price: 011 826 5887

Danio margaritatus, the celestial pearl danio, often referred to in the aquarium trade as galaxy rasbora or Microrasbora sp. 'Galaxy', is a small cyprinid from Myanmar.

The Celestial Pearl Danio is a freshwater fish found in small, vegetated ponds in South East Asia.

These fish boast plenty of color from the white pearl like spots on their sides to the red coloration on the fins.

This fish has a bizarre body shape in comparison to other fish that it has close relations with. It has a nose that appears somewhat stumpy, with its body length being about three times that of its height.

There is a striking difference in the colors of the males and females. The males exhibit rather bright blue body coloration with more coloration in their fins. Females on their part exhibit duller bluish-greenish background coloration with a tint of yellowish color to their bellies.
Both the female and the male sexes exhibit a pattern of what appears to be small dots on their bodies. The gill plates of both the sexes are so transparent so that you can visibly see blood vessels through them.
