Getting ready to stock my 10 gallon with small fish. Can you tell me between the rasboras, danio and tetras (ember) are some more skittish than others and likely to hide out? In planning what to get, I want something that will be hiding in the back plants

I know the danios likely won't be skittish unless there is something that is really frightening like predators or something. They will swim back and forth all day like out in the open.

I have embers, they don't hide and aren't skittish. They don't react to anyone being around the tank and carry on.


Not sure about the others you mentionned tho

I think a 10 gal is small for danios. It might work for ember tetras and the smaller species of rasbora.
Depends what type of danio, zebra danios and giant danios would need a bigger tank but celestial pearl danios would be fine.
