If you have or do keep Danios please share your experience of them..

What species?
Behaviour?
Tank mates?
Food?

Personally I think with the variety of species you have to choose from and just how bulletproof these fish can be.
They are one of the best beginner tropical fish to go for.
I'd pay silly money for some Fire Ring Danios. Hard to find in the UK

I have 2 zebra danios and 2 leopard danios. My friend gave them to me 2 years ago when they were moving across state. The fish are nearly 3 now, still thriving. They eat bloodworms, brine shrimp, and tropical flakes. They chase each other around the tank time to time, which is how I know which is the dominant one. Tank mates are: Sword tails, and a single angel fish.

I have Giant danios. They've proven to be incredible dither fish for my Odessa Barb who would constantly hide before introducing the danios. They're beautiful looking fish and constantly on the move.

The red are odessa barb and the orange are gold barb

Tank size, its more about length of tank than anything. Wouldn't put them in anything smaller than a 4ft

Lol I have glofish danios in with glofish tetras in a 20g tank. They're active little swimmers for sure. I feed them tropical flake and freeze dried bloodworms
