    Long Fin + Normal Zebra Danio?

    Hey everyone, I have 7 Zebra Danio that are currently helping to cycle my tank. Eventually I want a school of 11 Zebra Danio but I like the longfins looks better for the aquarium.

    My question is, will Longfin and normal zebra danio school together? Or would they just form their own clicks?

    Thanks

    Yes, they will school together. They probably don't even notice the difference in fin length.

    they are the same thing..... just selective breed for the longer fins.

    ok.. on that note, I am in a similar situation. Currently have 8 long fins in a 10 gallon ( they really are a cool looking fish when you get a good look at them) Was at a LFS last week and saw some pink ones. I like then just to add some colour ( not confident enough with the tank to add the gouramis that the g/f wants) Would long fins and pink danios school together? I know I saw some giant danios the other day and was told they would not school

    Yes, again.

    Long fins will school with regular fins will school with leopards will school with glo-danios... it's all the same fish, just different color variations. And as most fish are color blind anyway, it really doesn't matter.

    Giant danios are a different species, so they aren't going to school with zebra danios.

    giant danios are also semi agressive and get way too large for a 10G tank
    my cat is my normal pet
    my fish are my soothing pets
    my rats are my weird pets
    does this make me well rounded?
