Danios can share their aquarium with other community aquarium fish of similar size and temperament. Instead of plants, they eat aquatic crustaceans, worms and aquatic insect larvae. Danios are schooling fish and like to swim in groups and should be kept with three or more other fish of the same species. You will see them swimming in the middle of your aquarium. To create a beautiful aquarium environment, be sure to add some top and bottom swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.
