The Leopard Danio (Danio rerio 'frankei') has a yellow or silver body with blue speckles. The Longfin variety has been bred to have longer pectoral, dorsal and caudal (tail) fins.

Many tropical community aquariums are populated with tetras, rasboras and other similar schooling fish. Though these fish are rather small, their pleasant temperaments, the schooling behaviors they exhibit and a vast variety of colors and shapes make them popular in the hobby. They can grow anywhere from a few centimeters to a few inches, and can add movement to a freshwater fish tank. Most of these fish are fairly easy to care for and have similar water chemistry and care requirements.

Danios are commonly recommended as “starter fish” and dither fish. They are fast and active swimmers and they like a long tank to swim in. Danios have interesting markings and are generally hardy and peaceful.

These fish prefer aquariums with plenty plants and ornamentation to explore, but also need plenty of open space to swim. They can be fed commercial flakes, granules and small pellets as a staple diet, with occasional feedings of meaty frozen or freeze dried treats such as bloodworms, plankton, mysis or brine shrimp. They prefer to be kept in groups of six or more to school and feel secure. Fish not kept in proper schools may be stressed and remain hidden or may become extremely nippy and aggressive.

Longfin Danio

This fish's arrival size is 1 inch in length. A really sweet schooling fish and the awesome factor is you can mix and match danios if their the same size.

schooling fish, which means that these fish like to be in groups of 3 or more. these fish are very friendly but are very bland in color.
