Spotted Danio (Brachydanio Nigrofasciatus)

Spotted Danio (Brachydanio Nigrofasciatus)

This attractive spotted danio is rather a small fish, which rarely exceeds 1.5 inch. The top half of the spotted danio is a shade of olive which grows paler as it descends down the body. The main stripe of Prussian blue extends the entire length of the body and across the tail, and below this is a row of blue spots.

The spotted danios aren't bred so readily as the zebras, but the process is the same-the eggs being dropped during a partial embrace.
