Food and feeding
Yoma danios will accept all foods offered. They should be given a quality flake or small pellets for the staple diet. To keep them well conditioned, offer them live or frozen foods twice a week.
Asia; Yoma danios are to be found in the water ways of Burma and Myanmar.
Males will have an orange edging to their ventral and anal fins; with the females this edging will be white. The dominant male in the group will also display the brightest colouration.
Separate the male and female for a week while they are being conditioned with live or frozen foods. Add marbles to the breeding tank for the eggs to fall into and keep a shallow water level. When spawning is complete the parents should be removed and remove the marbles as well to leave the eggs in a bare tank with an air stone. When they fry are free swimming, they can be fed on Infusoria.
The expected life span for Yoma danio is 3-5 years.
Danio feegradei are excellent jumpers; a tight fitting lid must be used on the aquarium. They are fast swimmers, open swimming spaces must be provided at the front of the tank, but add plants in the mid-back ground to display their colouration at its best.
