Gold Danio Description: The gold danio is a great fish for a beginning aquarium h keeper. It is very hearty and breeds prolifically. Because the gold danio is a schooling fish, it should be kept in groups of 3 or more. It is a great community fish that can be kept with most other fish that will not eat it. Because these are active fish that like to swim, do not be surprised to find them spending time in the current created by powerheads or filters.

Tank Mate Compatibility: Other peaceful community fish.

Gold Danio Breeding & Spawning: To induce breeding, place pairs into a shallow tank with new, fresh water. Slowly raise the temperature in the aquarium to 77-80 degrees F. Provide plenty of fine leaved plants for cover and breeding areas. Once the pairs spawn, remove them from the shallow aquarium so they do not eat the eggs or fry. Pairs stay mated for life.

Determining Gold Danio Sex: Males tend to be smaller and more brightly colored than females.
