roseline danios??
ok, i just bought two fish, that my LFS had labeled 'golden roseline danio'. they are the same size, and just a little bigger than zebra danios. i can't really find any information on them. are they really danios? its not a common type of danio that i have read about.

Not Puntius denisonii?:question:

no, definately not Puntius denisonii- no dots on tail, a little smaller and slightly heavier bodied. there is no solid black line in the middle- but there is a red smudge mark near their bottom half. they are really quite stunning to look at. i bought 2 and they try to school with my zebra danios. they are really fast movers- and i was told they could get a little nippy with eachother, but so far mine haven't. should i try to snap a picture? ( if they would sit still!)

I think I have an odd feeling this could be Danio roseus, Mia?

it definately has characteristics of that fish- that looks more like mine. but mine is not entirely red, its half red, and half silver-ish, with a golden line dividing the two colors. but the body and size / shape look like the rose looks almost like a hybrid of a pearl and rose danio. i will try to get my photographer friend to snap a picture this week, cause they are sooo pretty. my friend has a high speed camera, so he might be able to capture them while swimming around.

How do the zebras feel about the new guys schooling with them?

miagrrl 12-05-2007 05:54 PM

they like them- its been a few weeks now, and everyone is fine with eachother. they don't really school together tightly, but they hang out in the same area. the roseline danios are just a little larger then the zebras, and a little tiny bit aggressive but they can all still be friends

two that spring to mind are
Danio rosesus
and danio blue red stripe
which may, or may not, turn out to be a natural colour morph of D.albolineatus
