Galaxy rasbora is an aquarium trade name given to Danio margaritatus
also called celestial pearl danio. These small freshwater tropical fish are beautiful and peaceful fish. They are best kept in multiples so it’s common to find them offered in small groups of 3, 6 or 10 fish. Galaxy rasbora are not fussy at all making them very undemanding fish and they are actually quite hardy. These fish are known to be omnivores, so they will eat algae, fish food flakes or pellets, as well as freeze-dried foods such as bloodworms and brine shrimp The range of D. margaritatus in the wild is part of the Salween basin, namely the Nam Lang and Nam Pawn Rivers of Southeast Asia. This species of rasbora are listed on the IUCN Red List of endangered fish
because the type locality suffered from over-exploitation, but further populations elsewhere in Myanmar and in northeastern Thailand have been recorded. . For a great article to read on them check The Celestial Pearl Danio a cautionary tale
