Ok, ok I know some of you have been waiting for these. There not great pics as the fish are still way too shy. Will take a while for them to get used to me.

So here are the pics.

This is the only Galaxy rasbora pic that is worth posting. I only took about 3 shots and it was scaring them and they are right at the back of the tank so I left it for another day. :ssmile:

Incredible shrimp pix! Beautiful! We'll wait on the rasboras...they're needing to settle in--but great to have a preview!

Yes the fish in the last pic is a galaxy Rasbora / celestial pearl danio.

Don't forget these are not full grown adults yet and will get better colouring as they mature. Plus I only got them today so there colouring isn't all that great.

LOL...thanks!

Common names are so confusing...and unless I keep up with the Latin names, I keep mixing them up...

They had some Celestial Pearl Danios for sale at the fish auction I went to last month. It was very tempting, but I REALLY wanted my bristlenoses and I don't have room for more fish...

My 'ordinary' swords are doing well in the tank...so I think I'll stick with them for a while...

The latin names are confusing. More so if they keep changing them. :hmm3grin2orange:

Glad your swords are doing well for you.

Glad to see they are settling in.

Good luck with them and an awesome picture of the shimp. I can't get rid of mine against all odds my shrimp continue to breed. As soon as the krib fry were removed they came out in their tens.:ssmile:
