    I appreciate the advice, I think I will look within the Danios species for my next fish purchase. Im giving the tank time to settle, so I have plenty of time to coordinate my next move. So any fish that is within the Danios species will school together? Thats my understanding. I will avoid getting the long fins to avoid the agony of watching them get shredded by the zebras. Mine seem to be particularly aggressive too though I'll admit I don't have a reference point from which to judge their behavior.

    Yeesh, LH! I've seen regular and longfins be kept together before so I just assumed! Maybe not such a good idea then.

    Are you refering to the Gold variation of the White Cloud Mountain Minnow? http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/fish/mountainminnow.php If so, they are not danios and will not school with your danios. Mountain Minnows are actually cool water fish too.

    I've mixed my long & short-finned danios with no problem; in fact the single long-finned I had eventually became the tank boss

    additional danios was definitely the way to go, there has been much less fin snapping and much more schooling and tranquility. the fish seem generally happier. thanks for the responses!

    That's good news! In a 20g with no other inhabitants, I would say you could have maybe 16 danios of various varieties. :)

    Lets shift gears for a moment. There is one Tera you could mix with Danios and that is the Bloodfin Tetra. They are probably the hardiest tetra besides the Buenos Aires. They can be kept in harder water and lower tempatures than most of thier cousins. Fast swimmers and tight schoolers that will inhabit the middle to upper part of your tank and reach about the same size as your danios.

    Sorry it took awile to remember this one.

    Hope it helps.

    Good suggestion, Steeler, but the fish will probably be happier in a bigger school of all one species than 2 species crammed into a 20g tank.
