I just bought my first ever fish - six zebra danios - and am very pleased at officially becoming a tropical fish owner. Just thought I'd share how happy I'm feeling

Yes, I'm using them to cycle with because I've only had the tank for two weeks.

Congratulations! I know the feeling when you get some new fishies But just be careful with your water parameters now, because you had no fish before in your 8 gallon tank and there are probably not enough bacteria to support all 6 fish's wastes. You'll probably have to do frequent water changes to remove nitrite (and/or ammonia) which can possibly rise with the addition of 6 fish at once.

Yes Danios are tough little fish but your water parameters still need to be watched very closely for their safety. Here is some reading for you while your setting up your tank
