Zebra Danio Care Guide

Blub

Zebra Danio
(Danio rerio)


Common names: Zebra danio, Zebrafish, Striped danio
Size: 6cm (approx 2.5 in)
pH: 6.5 – 8
Tempº: 18ºC - 26ºC (64 F - 78 F)

Tank region: Middle/top layer
Origin: India
Gender: Males have yellow stripes in-between their black stripes.
Notes: Zebra danios are perfect for the begginer’s tank. Active, pretty and hardy – these fish will go great in most communities. However, they can be a little nippy at times and it is a bad idea to keep them with Bettas, whose fins will be ripped by the danios. Keeping them with shy Gouramis is also a bad idea, as they could scare the timid fish into hiding and also damage their fins.
However, as this is a schooling fish, it is essential to keep them in groups of 6 or more.
