Be careful with cpds. They can be a hard fish sometimes and are quite pricey for a nanofish. I got some a while ago and put them with a pair of sparkling gouramis and the cpds acted very anxious and sparkling gouramis just destroyed them. I lost like $70 to cpds

I got 12 cpds a month ago for my shrimp tank. I have 2 left but I am lucky enough to have a male and female pair left. I only pay $3 each for mine for a local breeder though but it still sucks to lose that many fish.

Yah I just got Harlequin rasboras instead. wow u got a great deal. Everywhere I have looked, even online, they are around 6-7 dollars each. Cpds are veeeeery cute tho. They remind me of miniature trout

I'm hoping they breed for me. They are so shy I have to sit for a while before they swim out.

Just Googled CPDs. Wow, they are pretty! Wish I had known of them before getting my cardinal tetras. What makes them so hard to keep?

They are just very nervous. They are very sensitive. Then the other fish pick up on their behavior and just pick on them. They aren't very tight schoolers either so that doesn't help. People forget that fish are still wild animals and it's survival of the fittest even in a fish tank

i know that pgmy corys are harmless.. i feel like a small group of pgmy cory would do just fine with a school of CDPs just my thought & also one of my ideas for my tank setup. WHICH BTW..... MY TANK HAS COMPLETELY CYCLED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...................and yet i still have not decided on my community tank fishies lol.

I have narrowed down some options... feel free to announce your votes from the following. im thinking of picking out 3-4 different species for my community tank. also open for any other suggestions ! thanks everyone

-Celestial pearl danios
-Harlequin Rasboras
-Pgmy Cory
-Red Cherry Shrimp
-Rummy nose tetras
-Cardinal tetras
-Normans lampeye killifish
-Tiger barbs

You could do the cpds, hrs, or the cardinal tetras. Both pygmy cories and shrimp would also go very well in that tank . IMO, tiger barbs and rummy noses need more swimming space than 12g. As for tthe killifish, I really don't know but do some research cuz they might work out well. Don't forget to post your end result too
