"A Quest for Danios"

Danios, danionins and other small cyprinids in the hobby and an 
overview from a young hobbyist's perspective.

I've been fixated on keeping small cyprinids (specifically danios) 
since a young age. Zebra danios were among the first fishes to spawn 
in my tanks. This talk will be about, broadly, what makes a Danio a 
worthwhile fish to keep and why I've focused so much of my attention 
on cyprinids in general. I will offer hints and tips on where to find 
rare danios and how to keep and breed them. Species I've spawned 
include: Danio aesculapii, Danio rerio, Danio albolineatus, Fire-ring 
Danio (kyathit), Danio tinwini, and Celestichthys sp (margaritatus, 
erythromicron, and choprae).
