The Glowlight Danio or Danio choprai is just one of the over 20 different species of Danio fish.  This species is a great beginner aquarium fish. It only needs an aquarium of 10 gallons or more, and is considered to be quite hardy. This freshwater fish works well in community tanks and requires the following water conditions, 73-79° F, KH 8-12, and pH 6.5-7.0. You can see a group Glowlight Danio swimming in the video below...

Glowlight Danio fish have bright colors of blue, green, red, and yellow on their slender bodies. The Glowlight Danio also has stripes and bars that grace this beautiful, yet small body. They only grow to about 1-1/2" in maximum length, so if you are going to buy one, you might as well get a few. These fish are great schoolers and really add something colorful to any aquarium. Glowlight Danio are also much more active when in a school of 6 or more. Make sure your aquarium has plants and hiding spaces for this freshwater aquarium fish.This species of Danio originates from Asia and is normally found in streams and small lakes in the wild. In the aquarium the Glowlight Danios should be fed an omnivore diet that includes, bloodworms, tubiflex, and flake food. When this fish spawns, which is possible in an aquarium setting, it uses the bottom gravel to deposit its eggs on. It only takes about a day and a half before the fry hatch. When they are first born you can feed them very, very small pieces of live food.
