Can I ask, why marbles? Are you interested in their look or the gaps between for sheltering eggs/fry?
If for protection, I recommend bare bottomed/thin sand layer with LOADS of plants such as water wisteria etc. You can tie the roots to rocks or plant them in mini pots for easy cleaning around them. Marbles will also trap a LOT of waste and could cause the water to foul more quickly.
Well if you quickly calculate how many you would need for one layer, I know its not real accurate, but I come up with 266. I don't think 75-100 would do the trick.
I'm looking to shelter the eggs, yes. I do plan on filling it with plants as well but I guess I just read that's what you do with danios. I know on the CPD forum a lot of people dont and just use plants. I do also like the way marbles look. If I only have a thin layer of marbles, lets say 2-4 deep, do you think that would trap too much waste?
