If you ever get into well-planted tanks, a 20 gallon would be a pretty sight with 24-36 CPD's and 12 Danio choprai.

oh, sorry i must have misread. my 10g is pretty well planted. i am actually adding more so it will definitely be more dense soon. if it wasn't so hard to move a 10g i would definitely get a 20g. living in the city i have to move pretty often, once a year and fish-tanks are a chore. but once i settle down i would love to get a huge tank have a lot of schooling fish. please do pm me about their breeding habits, i am very interested and there is little info out there.

Awesome write up! Im a big Danio Fan, and I really enjoyed reading this! I also learned some great new stuff including about the CPD's which I think I would really like. Im gonna try and find a pic of them because im very curious!
Tank1) 10G-Partially plant, Comm Tank. Topfin 10G Biobag Filter, small airstone. Some plastic plants for now. Lots of Java Moss on bridge like lavarock, 1 mini Sword in pot, floating clump of Riccia, water sprite, both floating and planted. 2-14W CFL's "Daylight". 3 WPG.
6 Danios (4 zebra,2 Leopard)
3 Albino Cory Cats
Tank2) 2.5 G Betta Tank. Tiny Tetra Whisper filter w/ airpump. Java Moss,floating water sprite, Riccia Fluitans. Male Crowntail Betta. 1 Small gold mystery snail
I picked up eleven zebra danios today at my LFS on a whim. I placed four of them in my 10g planted tank that's in the process of growing and then the other seven in my 29g because I wanted some fish that stayed in the top level of the water.
Very educational Dave! Thanks for the lesson.

Thanks A Lot The Information Was very Useful
30 G Freshwater 2 Black Moor & 1 VeilTail
10 G 5 Male and 1 Female Fancy Guppy Breeder
I wouldn't exactly say glofish are on the market as very few countries do not have a ban on selling geneticly modifed animals.
SIX OR MORE MAN TO THE RESCUE!
This is a fantastic wealth of knowledge! Thank you so much.
I had no idea Zebras would breed so often. I have, I think, 4 females and 3 males. I know two of the females are of egg-laying age and size.
I'll have to try it out. :D
Thanks again for the great info!
Perfect timing for me to find this article.
I'm moving next weekend and when I half Drained my Danio tank I stopped and checked my emails to take a break.
When I went back it looked like there was a bunch of mosiquito's on my tank in the water. I had to do a second look!!!!
My one Danio seemed fat but I thought it was overfeeding.
Then I read about Zebra female Danio's having white bellies which she had.
I just left it for awhile and she seemed fat for awhile so I quit watching.
Until today when I wanted to drain my tank and take it to the new place and set it up for next weekend's move.
Well that set me back a few hours cause I had to get a tank ready for them.
Couldn't catch them cause some were on the sides so I guess they were born today when the water load was lightened.
So now I have 4 small tanks to move.
I cooked an egg and added some of their water to it cause I read to feed babies hard boiled egg yolks. Least that's what I do with my platties.
The one batch I didn't and they took a long time to grow.
So thanks again. Now I know they must be only 1 day old.
