Giant danios and zebra danios

Can keep giant danios and zebra danios in the same tank? I love both so would the size difference in the giant ones be a problem? Because i want to add some zebra danios into a tank with some giant danios.

How big is the tank, and do you have a heater? I am sure they will be fine, as long as you don't overstock.

We keep giant danios with our cichlids. They're such quick lil buggers that it freaks out the JDs. lol.

You shouldn't have trouble keeping both types together. We've never seen them nipping at anyone, not even the catfish.

As long as you have enough of each, they won't get nippy. One or two danios by themselves tend to not be happy and/or social.

I have both Giant and regular Danios. Since they are a schooling fish the key is to keep them in groups of six or more to reduce any agressive behavior.
