Other things than light are also at play here. A 6g is not sufficient space for danio, as these fish must be maintained in groups. They are shoaling fish, needing the company of others and interacting aqmong them. At least 6 of each species is recommended, but not in a 6g. Given the stress this causes the danio, adding bright light makes it moreso, as they don't like that either. Almost all forest fish occur in what we would consider dimly-lit waters. Please have a read of the profiles on both species, Zebra Danio and Pearl Danio, click on the shaded name to see the respective profile.
