Hikari-Danios belong to a scientifically still undescribed species of Danio from Burma. The closest relative is Danio kerri. However, Hikari danios are by far more colorful than D. kerri and really beautiful fish. Keeping and breeding Hikari Danios is absolutely comparable to the very well known zebra fish, Danio rerio. Hikari danios attain a maximum length of about 5 cm.
It has been a quite long time since the last import of these pretty fish. Now we were able to get them again. By that opportunity we found that we had two different codenumbers for Hikari danios, one for „blue“ and one for „yellow“. We asked our supplier and he answered: in fact the fish have formerly been assorted in blue and yellow ones until we became aware that the blue ones are the females and the yellow ones the males…
For our customers: the fish have code 413733 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
