Food and feeding

Tiger danios are not fussy eaters so use a quality flake for the staple diet but this should be varied by offering treats of live or frozen foods twice a week.

Origin

Asia; Tiger danios are native to the waterways of Thailand.

Sexing

Males have a slimmer body shape when compared to the females and will display a brighter colouration.

Breeding

Use a small breeding tank and add java moss or spawning mops to provide spawning sites. Raise the temperature of the breeding tank slightly higher than the main tank and after the parents have been conditioned on live foods, add them to the breeding tank. Once spawning is complete, remove the parents to prevent them eating the eggs. The eggs should hatch after 36-48 hours and once the fry are free swimming they can be fed on Infusoria initially.

Lifespan

The expected life span for Tiger danio is 3-4 years.

Short description

A peaceful species that is relatively new to the aquarium hobby. Devario maetaengensis are best kept in small groups of at least 6 specimens and ensure that there are open swimming spaces at the front of the tank.
