Very, VERY easy to keep fish. Highly active - all my danios always swam in very eratic patterns in the waterfall of my powerfilter. Comical and energetic. A great fish to observe!

Zebra Danios are often used just as 'cycling' or 'beginner' fish, but they are fun and interesting for even established tanks and experienced hobbyists! Despite being active, mine are very peaceful and make fine tankmates for my male betta. They keep to themselves and play, play, play! They're lots of fun to watch; they always put a grin on my face! The ones I received from liveaquaria were much more beautiful and showed more silvery/purple color than the ones I have seen and purchased in the past in pet stores. I would recommend them for sure; how could you not love such a cheery, active fish?

These fish are some of the most active I have ever seen. They're constantly busy in their schools, swimming every inch of my tank. I love having them, and will always keep them in any community or planted tank I have!

These are great fish! Always active and playful. I've had them in every beginning aquarium that I've had and have never had a problem with them. In fact I have a few in a new tank right now, cycling it for me.

Very hearty, active, loose schooling fish. They are very good for cycling and beginners will never have problems with them.

A very active and hardy fish; great for beginners or anyone looking to add some life to their tanks. Mine were the cycling fish, and went through with flying colors. Never did they clamp their fins or appear unhappy. They get along with everyone else in the tank, and play continually. They are happiest in groups of six though; then you see the shoaling effect more often.

Zebra Dinos were the first fish I started with when I got my first tank years ago. They are always a blast to watch and full of energy. They are fast little fish which they will make you work when you need to catch one. But otherwise I enjoy having these fish in my community tank.

These are great fish, very active and recently become my favorite in my 30 gallon aquarium. They are housed with a 5 inch gold marble algae eater, two silver mollies, 5 neon tetras, and 4 cherry barbs.
My two new ones are a little smaller than the other 4 and seem to keep to themselves. I have only had them for a few hours now so maybe they are just getting used to their new home. They came out from hiding and ate well during the night time feeding.
Very highly recommend these for any community tank. Their high level of activity seems to liven up the whole aquarium.

I LOVE these little fish. Swim, swim, swim, all they do is swim. I have four in a tank with an elephant-nose, red tail shark, and a little pleco.

The Zebra Danio's are a really active fish once they are acclimated to your tank they will swim all day long. Nice blueish colors with white stripes are very nice to look at , and with other fishy colors in contrast with them.

Everybody has already said how fun these fish are to watch, but watch out. Like many other danios, they do like to chase other fish. It's all in good fun, and while it may look like they're nipping at the fins of other fish... they do not. They chase and bump other fish, but they don't bite. Still, they will continuously chase other slow moving fish that hang around the surface. Because of this behavior, I never have less than 5 in my 55 gallon tank. It might sound somewhat illogical to buy more fish that like to chase others, but they do like to chase each other more than other fish.
