The Giant Danio is a true "giant" among danios. It can grow to a maximum length of four inches and is an excellent schooling fish in larger community aquariums. The Giant Danio is also a very attractive fish with captivating blue coloration. Its gold spots and lines intensify the blue-green background of this fish.
Because the Giant Danio is such an active fish, it requires a large aquarium with ample swimming room. A hood should always be installed on the aquarium housing these fish, as they like to jump. Giant Danios should be kept in a group consisting of five or more fish.
Giant Danios are omnivores and should be fed a diet of flake foods with plenty of vegetable matter, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex.
