The zebra's I got last week have shedded the fins totally on my long-finned danio's that I just love. I wanted more of the long-finned but couldn't find them so got the zebra's. Yesterday I found my long-fins hiding in the plants with hardly any fins left on them! They have been moved!

Oh my goodness... So sorry to hear about that! Use some stress coat or melafix to get those long flowing fins back!

I love the long-finned. The are a deep blue and so pretty and I wanted many more of them. Got these zebra's thinking they may pal together. Wrong! I saw a huge amount of chasing going on but they move so fast and I took it as playing together.

I had to literally remove everything from the 55 tank to catch the one long-fin. I got worn out much faster than he did!

It is hard catching them, i have to lower the water level in my tank. Im sorry to hear about that hobbs. They should be alright though. Good luck!

I hear long fins should only be kept with other long fins and that differrent Danio types should be added in pairs.

My long fins and zebras get a long great. They practically school together
