Food and feeding

The Hora Danio should accept all foods offered. Use a quality flake for the staple diet but supplement this with treats of blood worms, daphnia or brine shrimp twice a week.

Origin

Asia; Hora danios are to be found in Myanmar (formerly Burma).

Sexing

Females will have a plumper body shape than the males.

Breeding

Hora danios can be difficult to breed but not impossible. Add spawning mops or Java moss to the breeding tank and add a group of mixed sex fish. Spawning will normally occur at day break, at this stage remove the parents to prevent them eating the eggs. After 24 hours the eggs should hatch and when the fry are free swimming they should be fed on Infusoria.

Lifespan

If given optimum conditions, Devario shanensis will live up to 5 years.

Short description

This species of Danio is quite rare in the aquarium trade so expect to pay a higher price for them compared to other common species of Danio. Devario shanensis should be kept in groups and prefer open swimming spaces with some planted areas at the side of the tank.
