How long does it take until a Zebra Danio is fully grown?

I wasn't sure if this belonged in the danios/loaches/barbs section or here, but since it involves fry, I thought it should be here. If I'm wrong, and this forum is for fry before they are spawned, please tell me.

Anyways, I have some zebra danio fry (my last count was 21) and I was wondering how long it would be before they are fully grown. I was planning on keeping two myself, but I know nothing on how long they grow. I know not to introduce them until they are about 1/3 inch long or so. How long is the wait before I should feel safe to put them with adults?




Also, what does LFS mean? All I can come up with is Latest Fish Store.

I think mine reached full size a good few months after being born - 3 or 4 months if I remember correctly. Wait until they are a good size before putting them back in with the adults. Making sure there are plenty of plants and hiding places will increase their chances of survival too.

Well, my last fry died at about a month old, so I'm starting over today. In a 1-gallon, I'm expecting them to take 4-5 months till salable size (I just hope they aren't banned by that act HR669 or whatever, or (even better) it isn't passed)

Currently wondering how long a baby Zebra Danio waits until maturity.

Westie, if that bill gets passed into law, you will be breaking the law by allowing your zebras to breed. So will I when my guppies drop fry. As usual, I will ignore stupid unenforceable laws and so will my guppies and mollies.True sailfin mollies will be OK because they are american native fish but all of my goodeids, including the ones that are endangered species, will have to go and I won't be allowed to let them keep breeding in captivity. I guess it will be time for some enligtened civil dispbedience for this old man.

Fish don't grow at the same rate. If you have the courage to perform massive water changes daily, your danio will grow at a much quicker rate.

If the law does get passed (which I hope won't), I doubt Zebras will get banned because they're one of the favorite models of scientists.
