Totally agree. I have CAE on craigslist for new home. Its very aggressive. So 12 danios are ok for a heavily planted tank. Hope to set up next week w/ ecocomplete, 2 anubias, amazon sword, and water sprite. That's to start. Will add plants weekly. Debating on fishless or fish cycle, since they're cycling fish anyways.
They're not cycling fish, they just happen to be hardy enough to withstand the high ammonia levels when the tank is cycling. This is still bad for the fish and will likely shorten their lifespan. I advise cycling fishless if possible.

I'm attracted to these little guys. Are there other types of danios that are compatible w/ zebras? How many in 20 gallon long planted? Danio only tank.
Zebras would work well with Leopard, Pearl, Ocelot, Orange Finned, Hikari and Fireline Danios - they are all roughly the same size. You could easily keep 12 to 15 fish in a planted 20 long.

Ocelot Danio (Danio kaythit - Spotted morph)...

For smaller Danios, I typically keep up to 65 Celestial Pearl Danios in 20 gallon long tanks. You could also keep up to around 40 Glowlight Danios, (Danio choprai), or Goldring Danios, (Danio tinwini), in a 20 long.

For best results, keep either a group of the larger ones or a group of the smaller ones.

I've never seen those Ocelot Danios before, they're really pretty fish.

I have rosy danios with my golden zebra danio. They get along perfectly fine. The rosies are just a little bit larger.

Update. The 20 gallon is occupied. Have to wait on my danio tank until next summer when goldfish go to pond.
