The Glowlight Danio is an incredibly colorful, active, and peaceful species that is a hardy and ideal fish for the community and planted aquarium, both subtropical and tropical!

 

The Glowlight Danio (Celestichthys choprae) is a very active, colorful species that is native to northern Myanmar. At an adult size barely exceeding 1 inch (2.5 cm), this peaceful schooling fish is an excellent addition to the well-decorated community aquarium. It is tolerant of a wide variety of water parameters, including temperature, so it is compatible with virtually all peaceful fish and invertebrates!

 

Like many typical danios, the Glowlight Danio is very active and should be kept in schools of 6-10 specimens, although even larger schools are more optimal. This fish is very hardy and undemanding in a well-maintained aquarium, but it needs a fair amount of space due to its active and somewhat nervous nature. Stress and nervousness are minimal when this fish is kept in a larger school. The Glowlight Danio is completely peaceful and rather social with many other fish species as well. It is compatible with almost any smaller, active, peaceful fish and will sometimes appear to school and interact with other species regularly. In nature, this species shares habitats with the Golden Zebra Loach. It will thrive in a planted aquarium with a good amount of decor such as rockwork and driftwood and its color will be most vibrant over dark substrate. It will not bother ornamental plants. It is compatible with any peaceful invertebrates that are too large to be considered prey, but it may prey on dwarf shrimp fry. This fish is a prodigious swimmer and jumper, so a tight-fitting lid or significantly lowered waterline is necessary to prevent startled or excited specimens from jumping out of the aquarium.

 

The Glowlight Danio is a micropredator in nature, feeding on tiny invertebrates such as insect larvae. In the aquarium, it is very unfussy and will accept most high-quality dry foods. However, it should also be fed a varied diet that includes live or frozen meaty foods of appropriate size.

Shipping Schedule for this service

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
