    My attempt at breeding celestial pearl danios was a HUGE success! I thought I only had 8 eggs, and yesterday I had 4 swimming fry and I could spot a few that were still in the "wriggler" stage, but today I woke up to see 14-20 fry swimming around! Now the challenge will be keeping them alive. (I tried to get some pictures but it was kinda difficult. These are the best ones haha)
    Edit: I think it's closer to 13-15 fry but still very exciting!

    Congrats on the fry :)
    In my experience with them I found they pretty much stay at the top level of the tank so use food that doesn’t sink quickly.
    I used First bites for a week or two as it’s such a fine powder it sits on the surface for ages so they can pick at it at their leisure.

    Very nice, i want to breed these too but tried to buy some 3 separate times and out of 16 or so fish only 1 survived more than a few days.
    He now rules over 15 ember tetra with a iron fin.
