Zebra Danio (also known as Zebrafish) is a hardy freshwater fish which is considered good for beginner aquarists, and is often used when cycling a new aquarium. They are a peaceful schooling fish which prefer to be kept in a group of 6 or more and are suitable for a community tank. Although not the most colourful of tropical fish, Zebra Danios are very active and will bring plenty of life to your aquarium.

Zebra Danios are best kept in a tank long enough for their active swimming, preferably with a current from a power filter as they often live in fast flowing streams in the wild. Plants can be included on the sides and back of the aquarium, leaving plenty of room in the center for swimming. They are good jumpers and a tight fitting lid is recommended.
