The Celestial Pearl Danio, or as its popular internet acronym, CPD, can be found in the crystal clear rivers of Hopong, Myanmar. This species is very secluded and its distribution beyond Myanmar is sparse, but has been found in the waters of the Thanlwin River. Luckily for us hobbyists, the conditions and overall habitat that these fish dwell are very similar to typical planted aquariums. Unlike the rivers and streams we may be accustomed to void of any vegetation, the rivers that support these fish are brimming with dense mats of local flora. Since the rivers that these danios come from are constantly moving and are susceptible to changes like run off and rain, these precious fish are also very hardy once properly acclimated to their new homes.
