Danio dangila (Moustached Danio)

Essentially a large, gold spotted danio. A distinguishing feature of this species are its large barbels. It dwells in mountain streams and prefers water slightly cooler than the average tropical fish. At the least, keep in a tank that is not overstocked and has good filtration and plenty of oxygen.

Some authors consider Danio meghalayensis to be a geographical variant of this species.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A peaceful, schooling fish suitable for community aquaria alongside other fishes of similar size and temperament. It is fairly boisterous, and like the other larger danios, will eat very small fish (such as livebearer fry) so choose tankmates with care. Best suited to a subtropical community with other mountain stream fishes. Tank decoration relatively unimportant, provided this fish has plenty of open swimming space.

Not yet bred in aquaria, but assumed to be similar to other danio species.
