Danio choprai (Glowlight Danio, Danio choprae)
A very pretty Danio that has only recently become more readily available. They are a shoaling fish and you should therefore look to keep at least six. Many aquarists and retailers refer to this fish as Danio choprae, an invalid synonym. Its common name come from its similarity to the popular glowlight tetra, though this danio is perhaps even more brightly coloured, and certainly much more active.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Very peaceful towards other fish, though like many danios among its own kind it continually engages in brief chases and fights. Easy to keep, though not long lived when kept too warm. Feeds on pretty much all floating foods, with live daphnia being a much appreciated treat. A lively and entertaining species.
Breeding is not very difficult. Feed the fish on a varied diet for a few weeks until they look to be in condition. Place a female (she will look well rounded compared to the males) and at least two males into a separate breeding tank.You could put more pairs into the breeding tank, but this will increase the chance of the eggs being eaten before they reach the floor. The tank should be bare bottomed and ideally place objects such as marbles onto the bottom so that when the fish spawn they will be unable to eat the eggs giving you time to catch the adults. The eggs generally take two to three days to hatch and after another two to three days they will be free swimming and can then be fed on infusoria until they are large enough to take other fry foods such as baby brine shrimp and finely powdered foods.
