Fish - Rasbora - Celestichthys margaritatus

4 9

Synonyms
Danio margaritatus 
Classification
Order: Cypriniformes Family: Cyprinidae
Distribution
Type locality is ‘Pools at foot of mountain near Hopong town 30 kilometers east of Taunggyi, Myanmar, elevation 1040 meters’, thought restricted to a single locality around 1,040 m AMSL near the town of Hopong in Shan State, eastern Myanmar.
It’s since been found in waters associated with the Salween (aka Thanlwin) River throughout southern Shan and even across the border in northern Thailand.
Habitat
The type locality is an area of permanently-flooded grassland formed by the damming of a spring for agricultural purposes.
The water is only around 30cm deep, transparent and supports dense growths of aquatic plants, mostly from the family Hydrocharitaceae which includes such genera as Elodea, Egeria and Blyxa.
Sympatric species included Devario sondhii, a Microrasbora cf. rubescens, an undescribed Petruichthys species known to aquarists as the ‘rosy’ loach and Channa harcourtbutleri.
From images most of the the other habitats look broadly similar, i.e., shallow areas of wetland surrounded by open grassland though at least one population was supposedly discovered in ‘deep forest’.
Maximum Standard Length
The largest officially-recorded specimen measured just 21 mm.
Aquarium Size
Despite its small size we wouldn’t keep a group of these in anything with base dimensions measuring less than 45 ∗ 30 cm due to the sometimes combative behaviour of dominant males (see ‘Behaviour and Compatibility).
