"Glow Light Danios"
« on: January 14, 2018, 09:46:23 AM »
...I picked up 3 of these last night at the ARK auction...They're a little lost in the 125!..

...I see the taxonomists have been at their nitpicking ways again...When I last had them they were Danio Choprae and now they are  Celestichthys choprae...!   When did that change Dennis?..
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

It happened a few years ago.

There is a disagreement between taxonomists about this (surprise).
The Celestichthys genus you found is from a splitter, who also remade the Brachydanio genus along side the Danio genus from a single larger Danio group.
There is also a lumper wants them all grouped together.

Based who published most recently (that I know of) the splitter is winning.

Personally, I like the split up taxonomy since it accentuates the differences among the different fish. Otherwise the Danio group would be rather large for a genus (probably more than 40 species, more keep getting discovered/described).
On the other hand, it is nice to have a stable naming system and not have to keep coming back and learn new names.
