Zebra danios aren't hard to breed. However, you need six or more of both the zebras and serapes. Is the tank cycled? Find out more about that in the articles section. How big is the tank? Planted? Filtration system? Params? It's easier to breed danios in a separate twenty gal tank in a school of six or more. You have to cycle the breeding tank and add either a piece of plastic netting big enough for eggs to drop through but not danios horizontally across the tank or a two inch layer of marbles. You need a sponge filter and a heater set a 78 degrees. Introduce the danios to the cycled tank and wait. Make sure the females are full of eggs. Feed small particle foods to fry.
