Zebra Danios (scientific name: Danio Rerio) are freshwater fish originally found in around wider range strained from Pakistan and Myanmar. Their main characteristic can simply be seen from their zebra’s color pattern. Like any other fish, Zebra Danios (a.k.a Zebra fish) need to be treated properly in order to grow well. Check out these maintenance techniques of zebra danio fish in the aquarium.

An Appropriate Aquarium

The first thing you need to pay attention to keep Zebra Danio fish in the aquarium is preparing a proper tank. Danios grow better in groups. Hence they need to live in a quite large aquarium. It’s recommended to put five or six danios in a tank that accommodates minimum 25 gallons (95 liters).
Putting three Danios in the narrower tank is tolerable, but they will be prone to stress, and it can lead to aggressive behavior. To decorate the tank, you can add grit and plants. They will not only prettify your aquarium but also give Danios some places to hide and swim actively.

Caring for Zebra Danio

Caring for Zebra Danio fish in the aquarium is quite easy. Zebra Danios are schooling fish, meaning that they live in a group. In open water, a school of zebra danio like swimming together in a large group.
It’s recommended to keep Danios away from aggressive fish, but you can add some other fish to the aquarium, such as barbs, corydoras catfish, similar-sized gouramis, loaches, and swordtails. As Danos are easy to care, you can feed them in a small amount. They are not picky eaters, but avoid overfeeding them because it will cause problems for your Danios. Feed them only two to three times in a week.
