- maybe one month ago, i bought 2 zebra danios and 2 guppies as feeder fish for my turtles. i thought they would be eaten in the next 24hrs but they (the danios) are still there... they are so rapid that the turtles have given up chasing them, and i started loving them. i just love watching them swim and chasing each other. the most bizar part of the story is that one of the guppies (before she was invited for dinner) gave birth to 6 guppies... and the babies are still here... no one has eaten them...not even the danios...

- I got my first two zebra danios and I love them!!!!!!!!!! I brought them home to a 20 gallon aquarium that already had 2 pink danios, 1 yellow danio, and 1 orange danio. They have so much fun chasing each other around the tank. A couple weeks later I got 3 guppies and plan on going back soon to get my last batch of fish. I bet they will be danios. I just love to watch them play around an go in and outside of the decorations. The are the best fish ever. I highly recommend these wonderful fish to anyone of any skill level.

Pink zebra sudden death
- I came to my living room at feeding time to see that my pink long finned zebra danio was floating lifeless. When i examined him his fins were missing :( After i said my goodbye to him and disposed of his body a few hours later i find by big normal zebra danio not swimming with the school he sits there in a dark corner of the tank near the filter not moving , when i put my hand over him he moves away and proceeds to come back in the spot not going away ...im scared for him i dont want him to die

fat not pregnant skinny pregnant
- i got a danio and a barb fish and i noticed that the barb fish was much fatter than the danio obviously the danio which is named wayne was really skinny and the barb which was named rooney was FAT FAT FAT i tried not feeding them as much each day but the results were the same then i went on vacation and had my friend watch them for the week when i came home i realized that there was a much smaller wayne and then there was like 14 much smaller wayne clones im really dumb i hadn't realized that they were breeding but what really surprised me is that the skinny little fish had babies and the big fat fish stayed well....... fat!

Danios Like Buddies!
- My yellow danio Sunbeam's buddy died leaving her alone with no one to play with. She was very lonely and sad, so we got her another fish, a scarlet danio named Starburst whom Sunbeam adores. They chase each other around day and night like crazed maniacs! Danios love playmates, so instead of getting one, consider getting two!

MY POOR FISH
- My zebra danio, Zipper, always was the first one to eat out of my twenty fish... Now a few days later I came down stairs and she was dead. Now that I am inspecting her, where her fins are, its red. I have never seen that on her... When I poke her belly it's squishy.(I hate touching wet squishy things) I feel worried cuz she might have laid eggs with out proper sperm to fertilyze the eggs. Anyways I'm a child and don't know much about fish diseases and how to help. I only know how to help birds and that doesn't help...PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO DECIFER THE SQUISHY BELLY!!!! Is she pregnant? Did she lay her eggs and she died? Did she die along side the eggs? IDK?!?!?

- I bought 9-12 goldfish for my outdoor pond and found I had two zebra danios in the mix by accident. They were so cool to watch. They were like best friends, always together and super playful. About a month later I started seeing babies. My two originals were a male and female. I now have about 15 of them, I bought an aquarium and brought them in. Love watching them, love that they mate for life. Neat little fish

- I just got mine a few months ago, and they are crazy. Fun but crazy. They are not peaceful by any means though. They pick on pretty much everything including each other. They scared my guppy to death, drove my gourami to illness, and terrorize my other fish. They spend so much time picking on each other I don't know how they live. The best part is feeding them they can swallow things 4x their size in one gulp. Strange little snake like piranhas. Def good for beginners.

Was looking for info on breeding
- I have four zebra danios, 5 glofish, an oto cat, and a male dragonscale betta. Up until this weekend, we also had 2 female bettas and a cory cat in there (one died, my daughter took the others for a separate tank). They all get along wonderfully. VERY active, impossible to get a picture of. One looks more puffy than usual. I was thinking she was pregnant, but I'm seeing they are egg layers. Maybe I'll have eggs soon...
- Picked these little fella's as my 1st fishes, have got 5 of them and I think they are wonderful active fish

amazing cold water fish
- I have two danios unless you class Aussie rainbow and white clouds as pretty much the same, one stripped one spotted, same size probably same sex. I've had both over a year one closer to two, they really are a tough fish. I got my zebra with a mountain minnow. I have a lot of fish in my school of a few different types now but those two have more of a unique bond as they are constantly around each other even though the spotted ones there up and down the tank. I have a 3ft tank. My mountain minnow nearly died just floating with the current the zebra was hardly seen away from it, weird and cool, I never thought cold water fish showed that kind of loyalty and character especially different types. They don't just differ in patterns but their bodies are shaped very different. If you have respect for native fish (aus, usa) you will learn a lot more about the cold water species and how special and different they really are.

DANIO SWIM DANIO EAT
- So I went to the local pet shop looking for an active fish.So I bring home 4 zebras.At that time in the tank there was 2 swordtails, 1 black neon , 1 weather loach, 2 SAEs and 4 zebras.They would always either be swimming or eating.Then sadly they all died.I recommend these fish to anyone looking for active easy to care for fish.

- I got two Zebra Danios and I kept them in a 30 gallon container with two five-banded barbs.A few weeks later, I saw 3 things about 4 millimeters long swim in the container. I think it's the fry. But I never wanted to breed them, well I do but I never expected them to breed. I'm not feeding them, but they are feeding on the copepods in the container. So do you think they will survive?
