zebra danios breeding???

PLEASE 12.mp4 video by sai559 - Photobucket
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.

please answer quick! is my zebra danios mating?
they are just chasing each other and one of them stomach looks like .1 inch bigger then the other one, but they are just chasing each others acting like tigerbarbs mating, are they mating?:thankyou::cry:
I combined your two posts into one thread since the topic was the same. It is best not to make more than one thread on a topic, it will allow us to offer better consolidated advice.
To your question, I'm not sure from the video. Are these two fish in a "breeding" tank? If yes, i would put a chunk of moss (like Java Moss) or peat on the bottom so the eggs can fall into it if they do spawn. Assuming this is a pair. The one chasing is certainly a male, the other may be a female or another male attempting to get away.
do this thing work by the way? How to make an Build an easy danio egg saver with pictures
