Native to fast-moving streams near Northern Myanmar, this small, peaceful and active Danio is a fantastic fish for a community aquarium! The colors on this fish are positively glowing! It has fairly strong schooling tendencies and is an agile swimmer.
In nature, this fish comes from fairly fast-flowing rivers, and requires well oxygenated water i the aquarium. Good water movement and high water quality are important for the long-term health of this fish. Because of it's activity level, it's a good idea to provide it with an aquarium with plenty of open space to swim. Also, a cover would be a good idea, as they can jump.
It's a true omnivore, consuming just about anything you care to feed it, from the usual frozen aquarium fare to pellets and live foods. Variety and a diet rich in carotenoids (or supplementing feed with powdered astaxanthin) can help maintain the fish's glowing coloration.
These aquacultured specimens are extremely hardy, super-colorful, well-handled, and adaptable. They're fantastic additions to a nicely planted or hardscape aquarium! They will average around 1.5-1.75 inches or so. We offer them in groups of 8 to take advantage of their gregarious schooling nature and interesting activity!
All in all, a fantastic fish for all sorts of peaceful community aquarium setups!
