Galaxy Rasbora (Celestial Pearl Danio) Compatability
 
Hi, my LFS got some of these in today, and they're on sale this weekend. I was wondering if I can add 5 of them to my 20 gallon tank, which now houses:

3 Platies
3 False Julii Corys
2 Guppies (long story)
2 Dwarf Gouramis

I've read the Galaxy's are very timid so I wanted to make sure none of these tankmates will be too boisterous for them.

Thanks!

I think the dwarf gourami are a little too much.
These fish stay tiny and are easily picked on.
They also require very soft water, under 5dH, as most are still wild caught, or haven't been captive bred for many generations.

I'm leaning towards what Olympia said but would recommend only the cories saty if you get the danios. Also get more then 5, at least 8.

Yes, the cories could also handle the cooler temperature that pearl danios need. :)
