Devario aequipinnatus (Giant Danio, Danio aequipinnatus)

A fairly large, minnow-like fish with a greenish body patterned with yellow squiggles and stripes. Looks superby when kept in large groups, which will allow the fish to school properly.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

An active, schooling fish appreciated for its bright colours and fairly peaceful temperament. Works best with barbs, catfish, and other non-aggressive fish of similar size. Large danio species will eat smaller fish, and should only be kept with fish too big to be molested.

This fish appreciates a strong water current and clean, well oxygenated water. Breeding is not difficult. The water needs to be slightly warmer than normal (around 26-28 C) and some sunlight is essential to trigger spawning. The eggs are scattered among plants and pebbles, and will be eaten if the parents are not removed. The eggs hatch after a day or two, and are easily raised on small live foods and finely ground flake.
