Food and feeding

Pearl Danio will accept all foods offered, their main diet should be flaked foods with treats of Tubifex, Brine shrimp and Daphnia.

Origin

Pearl danios originate from Burma, Sumatra, and Thailand.

Sexing

The males tend to be smaller with a slimmer body shape.

Breeding

The breeding tank should be set up with a shallow water line (6 inches is ideal), and marbles should be used for the substrate to allow the eggs to fall through. Fine leaved plants should also be added to the tank. They have been known to spawn as a group rather than pairs so add twice as many males as females to induce this. Remove the parents once all the eggs have been laid as they are prone to eat the eggs. Keep the tank in darkness until all the eggs have hatched.

Lifespan

Given the correct conditions Pearl danios should live for up to 5 years.

Short description

The pearl Danio needs to kept in groups of at least 4 fish. They are very peaceful, so make a good addition to the community tank. The tank should be well covered as Danio albolineatus are prone to jumping out of the water.
