New Zebra Danios

I previously had 5 zebra danios in Steve’s tank but Steve ate the 3 and there’s 2 remaining. The 2 were both males and since danios need to be in schools, they were very aggressive to each other, chasing the other away. This is a common behavior of zebra danios, but the aggression goes away when more fish are added. That’s what I did today. I went to Dondaemoon Aquarium Markets and got 3 danios for the remaining ones in the tank. They were slightly smaller and lighter in color than the ones in the tank. Light color indicates stress for the danios. I hoped they would get better once they reach a proper home instead of a crowded tank they have in the fish market.

When the new danios were plopped into the tank, the old ones came rushing to say hello. The old ones and the new ones were inspecting each other and recognized that they were friends. They are doing fantastically! Now I have a happy school of five zebra danios!

I wish I could take a proper picture of the danios but it is near to impossible because they are so fast! Even with the bare eyes they are hard to observe close up. There’s no way my cellphone cam is going to capture these lovable fish!
