anyone know anything about breeding zebra danios? Because one of mine ((the largest so I'm assuming itz a female)) is doing this weird thing where she sits behind the plant in the back corner and does this wiggling thing... then she stops after a few minutes to chase the other fish away, then goes back behind the plant evey couple of hours ((1-3)) she swims back and fourth with this other fish and they circle eachother and stuff. Does this mean they're mating?? ((I have NO experience at ALL))

In an emergency always do a water change. Doesn't sound like they were mating. Don't know what's wrong with your fishie. sorry

If a fish hides itself away by a plant or anything and looks like its panting/gasping in my own experience it normally means that they are ill danios are egg scatterers so I don't believe they do the wiggle dance like live bearers (guppies, platies etc) When my guppies or mollies etc are about to give birth they will hide away panting and doing the wiggle dance but quickly you can see they are in labour but I have never heard of a danio doing this .. good luck
