How to Keep:

This danio species prefers cool, soft, and slightly acidic to neutral water conditions. It's important to replicate their natural environment, which consists of dense vegetation and a slow current. They are best kept in groups, as they are schooling fish, and feel safest in numbers. A tank with plenty of plants, especially floating varieties, will help them thrive and show their best colors.
