If you’re new to aquariums or just looking to add a pretty, peaceful fish to your community tank, you can’t go wrong with the pearl danio. This easy-going species is hardy, easy to care for, and gets along with just about any other peaceful fish. Its iridescent colors make it unusually attractive. The pearl danio thrives in a smaller 75 litre tank and reproduces readily in captivity.
Danios have been a long-time favorite among freshwater aquarists for their attractive coloration, active personality, and hardiness. The Danio is best kept in groups and gets along with other Danio species as well as other peaceful fish of the same size. They dwell in the middle and top strata of an established aquarium.
This is a hardy and easy-to-care-for fish with a definite “wow factor” in the peaceful community aquarium.
Since the Danio is an omnivore, feed it a varied diet of flake and frozen foods.
As a tropical species, the danio thrives in warm waters between 18-25°C. They can live without a heater if your home stays consistently warm and thrive at the lower end of this temperature range.
