[Ebook] The New Guide to Aquarium Fish – Cypriniformes – Danios
Danios are very similar to barbs but are much slimmer-bodied. They are Asian fishes and are found in large shoals in fast flowing waters. In the aquarium they prefer the upper layers of the water and may be seen cruising around all day. Most people buy just a couple, but with only two much of the beauty is lost as the fishes have no others to display to. They are peaceful, ideal community fishes.
