Danios are hardy, energetic, and mild tempered fish. They are good fish for most aquariums, and Danios are strongly recommended as good fish for beginners in their first aquarium.

Appropriate Home
An aquarium with an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4 inch of gravel, and an aquarium heater adjusted between 70 and 82 degrees F. Over a period of time Danios can adapt to even lower temperatures and live in an aquarium without a heater.

  These are some of the Zebra Danios for sale at our online retail Tropical Fish store. They enjoy each other's company and often crowd together. Click here for more about buying Danios from us. 
     

Recommended Diet
Floating flake food and freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. Both of these foods are available in most stores that sell pet fish. Danios also relish an occasional feeding of a few live Black Worms and live or frozen brine shrimp. Click here for more about feeding your fish. I feed these Danios a few Black Worms every other day.

Compatibility
All Danios prefer to live in a group with at least six members of their species. Good Tank Mates for Danios are: All Rainbows, all Barbs, one Red Tail Shark or one Rainbow Shark, most types of Gouramis unless they are much larger than the Danios, a school of Bala Sharks, a school of Clown Loaches, and Yoyo Loaches. Danios are often seen in aquariums with livebearers such as Platies, Mollies, and Swordtails. Corydoras Catfish and a Plecostomus Catfish are also kept with Danios.
 
Various types of Danios are often used as dither fish to distract aggressive fish from fighting. For example, when female Bettas live together in the same aquarium, they often flare their gills and act aggressively toward each other. But when the busy Danios come schooling past, the female Bettas are distracted and leave each other alone.
