Native to streams and pools, the Glowlight Danio does well with other Danio species and other peaceful fish of similar size. This fish will be very active when kept in a school of six or more individuals. The Glowlight Danio prefers a planted aquarium with plenty of swimming space available.
Glowlight Danios scatter their eggs in shallow water over a substrate of coarse gravel. A well-planted tank may help induce breeding in this shy fish. After hatching, usually within 36 hours after spawning, the fry should be fed fine pieces of live foods.
Glowlight Danios are omnivores and should be fed a diet of flake foods with plenty of vegetable matter, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex.
