Tomorrow I'm planning on heading out to get five or six zebra danios for my 10 gal
. tank. The only other fish in there at the moment is a pleco, about 1 year old, maybe three or four inches long.
I was wondering if there was any advice for taking care of danios that anyone had to offer. I've chosen them because they are fun and very hardy fish from what I hear. I also had a couple questions about taking care of them....
Firstly, I have a few different types of fishfood on hand already. I've heard that danios will eat a large variety of things, and I was wondering if anything I have on hand will work. I have goldfish flakes, goldfish crumbles, shrimp pellets, and algae wafers.
Also, I've heard that you can't have just two or three, or they become pretty serious fin-nippers. I've heard some people say that you should get at least five, and others say six. But I've also heard you should get an odd number. If I get five, will they do all right? Or should I go for six? If I can, I'd like to just get five of them, but I don't want the danios to become aggressive.
