    Just wondering what the best temperature is for my 5 zebra danios and 3 pink danios is? Some Web sites say 70-74 and others say 77-80.

    What are pink danios? Do you mean glofish danios? Well the best temperature for zebra danios is 64-70.

    Personally I think they are ok up to around 74. Just my opinion.

    That's way below what most tropical fish like. Are they pond fish or something?

    Ok I was wrong but it says up to 76. But then you can't have the Bolivian ram.

    I'm probably not the best to answer why as there are many people on here who are much smarter than me. I just know that Danios are colder water fish. I believe they fall into the same "category" as minnows when it comes to temperature. Though minnows require cooler than the 74 that I mentioned.

    You're thinking of White Cloud Mountain minnows I think.

    I have a small group of Zebra Danios (6) and Ive had them living in 80 degree water. Its way higher than what people recommend for them but they seem to be doing perfectly fine. Who knows? Maybe they got used to it.

    They may look fine, but their lifespan will be shortened.
