Here’s some information about the Glowlight Danio:
- Appearance: The Glowlight Danio is a small fish, typically reaching a maximum length of about 1 inch (2.5 cm). It has a slender body with a rounded belly. The males are generally more colorful, with vibrant red, blue, and gold hues. They have a shimmering, pearl-like pattern on their body, giving them a celestial appearance. The females are less colorful, with a silver and pale yellow coloration.
- Behavior: Glowlight Danios are peaceful and active fish that do well in community aquariums. They are known for their playful and lively behavior, often seen darting around the tank. They are also schooling fish, so it is recommended to keep them in groups of at least six or more individuals to make them feel secure and display their natural schooling behavior.
- Aquarium Requirements: A well-maintained aquarium of at least 10 gallons is suitable for a small group of Glowlight Danios. They appreciate a planted aquarium with plenty of swimming space. Floating plants can provide shade and create a natural environment. The water temperature should be maintained between 73°F and 79°F (23°C and 26°C), with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5.
- Compatibility: Glowlight Danios are peaceful and can be kept with other small, non-aggressive fish species. They should not be kept with larger or aggressive tankmates that might prey on or harass them. Suitable tankmates can include small tetras, rasboras, dwarf cichlids, and peaceful shrimp species.
- Diet: Glowlight Danios are omnivorous and will accept a variety of foods. They have a small mouth, so they prefer small-sized foods. They can be fed high-quality flake or pellet foods designed for small tropical fish. They also enjoy small live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, or micro worms. Including some plant-based foods, like spirulina flakes or blanched vegetables, is beneficial for their overall health.
Glowlight Danios are popular choices for community aquariums due to their small size, beautiful colors, and peaceful nature. With proper care, suitable tankmates, and a balanced diet, they can thrive and provide an attractive display in your aquarium.
