| || | I cut/paste the following from the fish profiles, maybe this will give you info. Is this a breeding tank? If so, it sounds like from what is written, you need to make some changes. If it's your regular tank, I also would say the fish will feel way more secure if you get a group of them. Video is probably way to fuzzy to get anyone to id sex of fish for you

This fish is one of the most popular and a long-time favorite among hobbyists owing to their hardiness and adaptable nature. They will show their best colouration in a group in a well-planted aquarium with floating plants to shade the light. As noted under Compatibility, they are active swimmers and should not be housed with slow, sedate fish as they will not only make them uneasy but may have a tendency to nip their fins.
Contrary to what some maintain, they do not require a strong flow from the filter [note the above description of their habitat]. However, provided it is not too strong, they can manage and make suitable tankmates for many of the smaller loach species.
Zebra danios are easy to spawn; like all danio species, they are egg scatterers and will readily eat their eggs. Females are rounder, slightly larger and a bit less colourful than males. Provide a spawning tank with thickets of fine-leaved plants or put the water level to half and place a deep bed of marbles, preferably 5-6 cm deep, so the eggs will slip unscathed. As these fish are among the easiest of the cyprinids to breed, breeding requires little effort by the aquarist. The fish has a lifespan of five years. It swims at all levels in the aquarium.
