    Surprise globra danio hybrids

    Hi there just thought I'd share these little beauties with all you fishy folk. I had the pair of adults in quarentine and when I moved them to my community tank I noticed some fry in the other tank. Their colour and patterns are still developing but they look better everyday.

    Danio has a white patch

    Does anyone know what this white patch might be? It doesn’t look like ich. Is it a fungus? I recently (today) adjusted the temperature by 1 degree higher and didn’t notice it before that.

    Evil, Evil Zebra Danio's

    I have (or had) a group of seven that delightfully schooled very well. So much and at such speed that the rest of the fish in the tank just had to get out of the way. They are described everywhere as "peaceful schooling fish". Buried in a book I read that they are also known to be fin...

    Does my Fish Have Dropsy??

    So I was wondering whether or not my zebra danio has dropsy or if it's just over weight. The fish doesnt have pineconing scales and seems perfectly fine other than his protuding stomach. When it comes to eating, the fish devours all the food and steals it from other fish. Hes always seems to...
