Food and feeding

Use a quality flake for the staple diet; they should also be given treats of blood worm, daphnia and tubifex.


Asia: this species of Danio is endemic to Myanmar.


When the females are carrying eggs, they will have a fuller profile; otherwise it is virtually impossible to distinguish between the sexes.


Glowlight danios can be tricky to get to breed; they are definitely one of the hardest danios in that respect. Add some java moss or spawning mops to the breeding tank and the eggs should be laid in the daybreak hours. Once all of the spawning has finished, remove the parents or they will eat the eggs. The fry will be very small when they hatch and can only accept minute foods like Infusoria initially. They are slow growers and can take up to 6 months to reach maturity.


The expected life span for Glowlight danio is 1-3 years.

Short description

Danio choprai should not be confused with glo-fish; they display a natural colouration and need to be kept in groups. They prefer a planted tank with open swimming spaces. Darker backgrounds bring out the best display of colour.
