Zebra Danio Spawn Video

I noticed a lot of crazy activity over my piece of driftwood. Well, the Danio's were spawning.

One of the fat females was dropping eggs. She is the one who looks really beat up. Poor girl is now covered in scratches from rolling in the wood. The male hung out in the cave, trying to keep everyone out. Couldn't chase the Gourami out tho. As you watch, you will see one small Zebra danio (male) constantly fighting with a male Leopard danio, who got in on the action.

When Zebra danios get to be adults, about 1.5", you can tell them apart. Males are smaller and have a gold tint to their bodies, females are big and fat and silver. I have 1 male and 4 females. I know for sure one of my long fin Leopard Danio's is a male because it always fights with the Zebra male when they spawn.

I got the best video I could get of it. It was hard to get them rolling around because as you can see they are in a cave in the driftwood and my digital camera does not have video lights. Plus, clear video is hard to get in the daytime with the lights against the tank, even with all the blinds shut.

How did I know where they dropped the eggs? Just watched where the other fish were munching down!
Enjoy

Just wondering, does anyone even look at these video's I make? If not, I wont bother to try making them anymore. I have posted about 6 of them and have never gotten any input at all.

Thanks for the feed back! It is a bit depressing when I offer so much advice and time only to have my posts ignored

I have a few remixes I put together. I wish I could do that on You-tube because I can't get a Photo-bucket video to embed in any forums. I have a video program I need to sit and mess with one day soon.

Here are a couple I have done.

This is my Bolivian Ram making a family video. Its kind of long. It starts with the pair flirting, then the spawn, wigglers, and follows the fry as they grow.

This one is the fry as they grow. It too is a tad long. I am going to be making a shorter version soon. This is my favorite, its so cute!

In this one they are almost 2 months old. Its short but sweet!

These are much shorter.

This one is my male Greshakei digging out a spot to spawn in. Look at him dumping sand all over!

This is my Egg Tumbler video. I stripped the eggs from my Red Zebra Mbuna after she had held for 6 days and raised them in a tumbler. It shows from newly hatched to free swimming. We never get to see that because the mom holds them the entire time.

And this one is just a cool slide show of my tanks and inhabitants. I made it for a web site I am working on.

Please let me know what you all think! Feed back will be wonderful!
Thanks. :p

Hi Dizz! I enjoy your videos. I watch them, just don't leave comments. I'll be sure to drop a line every now and again. You have some really nice tanks and the videos are great quality! Please don't stop posting them!

wow your males danios really turn yellow when they're mating! Mine get a little yellowish, but never like that. Interesting vid, and driftwood centerpiece too.

I like the second video alot. You must feel like the paparazzi filming these. I especially like the one month olds. They look like they have little black mohawks

I think your videos are very nice. The Eggtumbler video was very impressive to watch. Keep up the good work!
