And they don't go psycho? I can't even stand the sight of ghost shrimp after that one killed my molly! Do they reproduce like rabbits? How are they for speed? The last thing I need is Renoir gulping them down.

umm... more docile then ghosts.they don't have the long pincers and they grow at a slower rate and their color stands out in dark substrate. they are hardworking on the algae stuck on plants where as the ghosts like the bottom area more.maybe the rcs just don't like the ghost but i' not sure about it. they do breed in the tank but i wouldn't say like rabbits as most of the time the eggs get eaten.i wished my rcs would breed like rabbits.it would save me a lot of cash.

It looks like I'll be getting myself some of those RCS, they sound perfect for Renoir's globe tank. He's gorgeous blue and I want a white substrate, they'll be perfect.

but they would be paler in color because of the white substrate.they get really red with darker substrate

OK well here's what I can make out of your situation. You can't really call danios "pregnant" because pregnancy is when an embryo is inside the mother. Since danios are external fertilizers, they need to fertilize their eggs outside of their bodies. If your females are large, then yes, they probably do have eggs. If you want to save the eggs and raise the fry, you need to create a simple breeding tank. If you'd like to do that, let me know and I'll give you a set up. Your fish could possibly be breeding already. But you will never see the eggs since they're small and are likely to be eaten before you have the chance to look.
