I didn't have any trouble at all.
Try this link first:
www.danios.info
Then there's these two:
Giant Danio - Danio aequipinnatus
Giant Danio | Danio aequipinnatus

Have fun and good luck

Well the one guy at danios.info is a grandfather, the other is his son so I would think about 45 and maybe 70.

I think James means at what age do the danios reach maturity and breed?

That's about what I thought - I was going to say at 2 inches long, they should be ready.

I bred zebra danios, just layer the bottom of the tank in marbels or java moss, and according to the third website provided above by "james" they are ready to breed at 2.8inches, pretty simple, the hardest part is feeding i found and keeping the fry alive

you might have to get up early in the morning to see them drop their eggs... danios tend to do that early. The other danios will probably be chasing the egg dropper, eating the eggs, unless you use a fine net to grab a few, or try the marble thing, and scoop them up later.
