So when I got my tank I stocked it with 4 longfin zebra danio. One died the first week while I was out of town. When I got home I flushed the dead one and then the next day I saw something that looked like an eyelash swimming. Then GULP it was eaten. And I looked against the glass of my tank and noticed a few fry this big
I was only able to catch one and it died . This was almost weeks ago. I'm going on my 4th week with the danios right now and the other day I vacuumed my tank and looked in the bucket and saw a bunch of more of the little guys ! And even 1 big one .. In just 3 weeks?
And even 2 of these
Found the first 1 with the rest of the little ones and another to day with a couple little ones
Last week I had a coupon for petco and I went and all they has was a regular danio but I knew my one guy was just a 3rd wheel to the breeding couple ! So I just bought it ! It's 1/4 the size of my long fin but today I noticed something!
It looks pregnant !
The little one on the right you can't really see in these pictures .
See a little better but its blurry
On the right.
My main question is in zebra danios does the make Impregnate the female fertilizing the eggs inside her or is it one of those deals where she lays the eggs and he swims over and does his thing and fertilizes them that way??
Week 1 got 4 longfin zebra danios
Week 2 found dead fish and one baby fry it died
Week 3 noticed fish mating and found more fry and vacuumed them up and put them in vase
Week 4 was today Monday.
Thanks . Time for bed
