Discription :
New species of fish are being discovered all of the time but most are just merged into the aquarium trade without a great impact, one species that has proven to be a massive hit with fish keepers has to be the Galaxy Rasbora. This fish with its amazing colouration has taken the market by storm even though it has only been available in the last 5 years. This beautiful but undemanding fish is so striking that when pictures first appeared of it, many people were sceptical and believed that all of the pictures had been doctored somehow to enhance the true colours of the fish as some form of marketing ploy.The Galaxy Rasbora has proven them wrong and is even more stunning when seen in its aquarium than any picture could hope to replicate. They were first discovered in 2006 in Myanmar in a small area near the Salween basin and they are already proving to be difficult to catch for sale due to their small numbers.


Aquarium Care :
Both the aquarium environment and tank mates play an important role in successfully keeping the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora in the home aquarium. The aquarium should be either densely planted or contain areas of the aquarium that are densely planted. This will both better replicate the Emerald Dwarf Rasboras natural habitat, but also give them a place to retreat to when threatened and to escape more boisterous tank mates.Tank mates also play an important role due to the shy nature of the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora. They need tank mates that are similar in size and disposition as themselves; as well as, tank mates that are not overly boisterous swimmers or feeders. Due to the stable nature of their natural lake habitat, the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora is not very tolerant of rapidly fluctuating water parameters.They will do best in calm well planted aquariums with a neutral pH and stable low to mid 70°F water temperature. Lastly, it is important to house this species as a group of 6 or more individuals, as they are a schooling species and will not do well in a pair or as a solo specimen.

Feeding :
Most danios are omnivores, and CPDs appear to be as well. My fish spend most of their time chasing and displaying for one another, and I have not seen them spend any time grazing. They have tiny mouths, and like all other cyprinids they have pharyngeal teeth. They also have tiny conical teeth in their jaws, indicating that they likely do prey on smaller critters.I feed my fish finely crushed premium-quality flakes, finely ground freeze-dried krill (this helps enhance the red coloration), newly hatched brine shrimp, and live foods like daphnia, moina, grindal worms, and small white worms. Several times a week I also feed with a high-quality micro pellet food. They eat everything with gusto!


Pete Liptrot and Paul Dixon of the Bolton Museum Aquarium were the world's first fishkeepers to spawn this species, and they managed to do just a couple of weeks after the fish first became available in the UK. Very little is known about reproduction. Paul says that he observed a brightly-coloured male attempting to drive females into a spawning mop and Pete found seven small eggs in a clump of Java moss a week later and spotted some fry which had already hatched. Said Pete: "The eggs have been laid over Java Moss and appear to be only very slightly adhesive, they drop out of the moss very easily. We've removed the moss to another aquarium to see what else hatches. As we were moving the moss one of the smaller males was very busy hunting around for eggs or fry."

1. As with all aquatic invertebrates, it is important to make sure copper does not get into the aquarium. Copper is toxic to all Dwarf Shrimp. Many medications contain elevated levels of copper, so it is recommended not to medicate an aquarium containing Dwarf Shrimp.
2. One of the most important aspects of shrimp keeping is Acclimatization of new shrimps, this is a must and should be done properly.
