Danio aesculapii (=Danio sp. „Pantherinus“)

6. July 2007

These minnows originate from Burma, does not grow over 4 cm and is therefore the smallest representative of the Danio genus. But now this beautiful barb fish has been imported by Aquarium Glaser and is now available for the dedicated aquarium hobbyist. As with all representatives of the Danio family, D. sp.„Pantherinus“ is a schooling fish and therefore should be kept in a group of minimal 6 individuals of the same species. It is a friendly and fast swimming fish. About the breeding of this species no reports could be found but no serious problem should occur with any breeding attempts because almost all Danio species are easy to breed.(Photo: Frank Schäfer, Text: Izaak den Daas)
