Good setup for danios?
I've got a 29 gallon tank with sand substrate that has been set up for quite a while now containing a blue cherex lobster and 4 zebra/pearl danios. What I recently did was divide the tank in half to separate them all because I used to have 6 danios and you can pretty much guess what happened to the othe other 2. Anyway, the fish and lobster both have their own sides.
The tank does not have a heater in it and stays consistently between 71-73 degrees. Due to being a college student, don't really have much $$$ to spend on one at the moment.
Despite the fact that I do not have a heater, do you think the danios would still breed? I read places that for best breeding conditions I should be between 76-80 degrees. Do you think that even though the temperature is lower than the suggested conditions the danios would still breed?
Any response is a great help
I think the temp, even a few degrees, is going to be important!
For danios you'll need an ideal temperature and lots of live foods... Mosquito larvae work well, along with blackworms if they can eat them.
