Food and feeding

Orange finned danios will accept all foods offered. Danio kyathit will readily consume quality flake or small pellets but they will require treats of live or frozen foods. Blood worms, daphnia and brine shrimp should be given twice weekly.


Asia; Orange finned danios are to be found all over the Asian continent but most numbers are to be found in the South East.


While the female’s fins will be cleat, the males will display a red colouration on all of their fins.


Being a new species of Danio in the aquarium hobby, there are not many reports of these breeding in captivity. It is believed that they will breed as other danios so a substrate should be provided for the eggs to fall into and the parents should be removed after spawning.


The expected life span for Danio kyathit is 2-3 years.

Short description

Orange finned danios make great community fish but should be kept in small groups of at least 6 fish. They prefer a planted tank but are tolerant of different water parameters. Some keepers even use these fish in coldwater set ups.
