celestial pearl danio questions
Hi everybody, I used to have a betta in a 2.5 gallon tank and was looking for some new fish (not bettas) to go in it. I recently found some of these fish at the store and checked them out on here. In the profile I know it says that they should be in an 18 inch tank, but they're like half an inch. So I was just curious if these cool little guys could go in my tank. Thanks!

Sorry, but that seems a little small I have some in a 11 gallon....mine were small when I got them ...they are about an inch now ! CPD's are really cool fish but need more room I will be moving mine to bigger tank soon.:-D

I would ask your local store (not chain) if they can order them for you . I just got 6 more last weekend they are super cute!

My fish tank has a betta in it-see any issues? The would be living with him- tank is planted and I know they can handle the bio-load. I can't see if they are nippy or not- or would be towards my Beta- any ideas?

I have two female bettas with mine issues

A male Betta is quite a different thing from a female. A Betta deserves its own space; tankmates are usually problematic. Either the Betta will go after them--and given the size of the danio this is highly likely, mine ate neons--or the smaller danio will find it too tempting to resist nipping the Betta's fins.

Slow sedate fish like a Betta should not be combined with faster swimming fish like the danio.

We have this fish in our profiles, click the shaded name: Celestial Pearl Danio This is another species, like the Betta, that should be on its own in a species tank.
