Pearl Danio (Danio albolineatus)
This shiny little fish is a good addition to a lively community. The Pearl Danio is undemanding of water conditions but does best in well filtered, moving water. The aquarium should have plenty of swimming space and a few planted areas. Aquarium length is more important than depth or width. A good community fish.
