So i'm currently cycling a 15 gallon (with plans to upgrade to a 20 long eventually) glo tank and would like to add a school of six glo-danios once it's done. I was reading on one of the fish-less cycling threads that you only want to add three additional fish at a time to give the bio load a chance to adjust, but I've also read that Danios do not do well in numbers less than six due to their aggression and fin nipping.

Would it be better to add only three Danios at a time or all six at once? I do have a few multI level plants and hides for them. I'm also currently doing daily water tests for three tanks that are fish-in cycling and have been treating those with Seachem Prime, Stability and Stress Guard. I could do the same for this tank but had heard the glo-danios can be sensitive due to genetics.

Any advice is appreciated!

I would add the 6 danios together. The bio load will adjust

Thanks guys! Going to wait for the cycle to finish up then I'll be getting my little group and bringing them home. Wish me luck! First time trying anything other than bettas.
