I am seeing more and more attacks in the danio group; one is almost dead from the attacks. I caught it (EPIC battle!) and put it in a hanging trap in the tank; but it's not the only one getting attacked. They are all getting bitten, constantly! I really am not thrilled with them, and they seem too hyper for what we are looking to have (a nice tank with a variety of pleasant fish, nothing too hyper)...I guess we miffed it by getting them?
It's a 55 gallon, btw. The loach is not bothered by the danios.
Advice? Bad idea to have them with loaches and plecos, or no?
We've also got one spotted danio in there as well. He's fine. Doesn't get into too many scraps cause he doesn't hang out with the others, or he just ignores them lol..
So, thank you again lol. I appreciate all the help...!!!
When I added my Giant Danios I thought I made a huge mistake. They were wild, my mollies ended up with ripped tails, and they swam like crazy animals all over the tank. After a couple weeks they are settling down and everyone is getting along much better. I also feed the pack before I add any more new fish.
If you are looking for a calmer tank better to get a different species. Rasboras, Tetras, Barbs and others all have calmer species, though a few are nippers.
If you want to keep the tank Asian in theme, then Rasboras and Barbs are mostly Asian.
Cool water fish: Look into the Barbs. Many species are compatible with the Dojo Loaches, as far as temperature goes.
Happy fish keeping!
What a strange thing..that the number of fish would have such an impact on their behavior...shows what a noob I am .
We are still aiming to add more fish and what we're probably going for is a calmer, non aggressive type tetra (I'm shooting for diamond tetras!) and some purple danios, but I'm not sure about those. If not those, then perhaps some guppies just for color . I love the way the danios look now, so pretty and sparkly silver/gold!~
After that, we'll be full up, and I guess we'll *have* to consider another tank. Aw. Sad....heh!
Thanks again, much appreciated!
