I love it when a plan comes together at a whim...congrats Laura, get us some discreet pics when you can...
I was just looking at black neons recently...the name sounds bland, but it doesn't describe the fish at all, IMO

yay for new fish! Laura, I learn new things every time I read in here. I'd like to ask: do you feed some of your veggies raw, or are they blanched first?
As SeaLady, I did not realize you could leave veggies in the tank for a while, either. No wonder I've not been successful at getting any of mine to eat them -- I only leave them in for around 5 minutes or something before fetching it back out again. ha ha
I'm so delighted that you are getting stocked up!

A male danio has a torpedo shape, much smaller than the female. The female is rounder on the bottom with a definite rounded belly look. It's hard to sex them when they're young, as they all look slender and only when they're a bit older can you really tell them apart. Most of the ones I've been looking at over the last several months have either all been obviously males or they've been too young to tell the difference.
