A typical danio, this fish is distinguished by its royal blue
color, red fins, and species purity
as it is often available as a hybrid having been crossed with
other danios, such as the albolineatus,
the pearl danio. An excellent schooling community fish, it is
entirely non-aggressive and breeds
easily when bred in a manner similar to the zebra or giant
danio, though it grows slowly and can
take up to 8 months to fully color up.
A tank of at least 10 gallons with
filtration that provides some
water movement and moderate
aeration will suit up to 3 pairs, and 20-25 fish can be kept
by themselves in a 30 gallon tank.
They will do fine on a quality dry
young are raised on
vinegar eels (or microworms)
followed by baby brine shrimp.
Plants are not required,
but to breed them we use Java moss to
collect the eggs. Moderate
light is provided to
best display their color, but little or lots of light
seems to have little effect on them.
They will tolerate slightly cooler
temps of 70-74
degrees, but are kept here at 72-76 degrees.
A slightly larger danio, these will probably eat new
young livebearer fry as any
larger fish would.
