HELP!! My Zebra Danios Are Turning Pink

  1. Tedy Initiate Member

    I bought 3 Zebra Danio about 2-3weeks ago i placed them in my 5g tank, including a filter, decor, ect. Recently i've been noticing that they are turning a light pink color on their entire body. They still seem really healthy, they are always active chasing each other occasionally. But i was wondering if anyone have any idea what this pink color mean? Help is much appreciated.



    Ammonia- 0.10ppm
    Ph- 7.6ppm

    Welcome to fishlore!
    zebra danios will turn a pinkish color when at night the tank light is turned off, and they are left in darkness for an hour or two.
    I know you didn't ask for this, but zebra danios need a 20g min, and need to be in a group of 6 or more.
