    Tank Mates for Aggressive Danios

    Danios are voracious eaters, so I'd agree that you don't want to put any shrimp in with them. 5 danios in a 10g should be fine, but they'd love to have a bigger tank whenever you feel like upgrading :) Luckily danios are also pretty clean fish so you can get away with adding a nerite snail no...

    Hi, welcome to MFT. Did you read all of the posts in this thread? There is some good information there. In my opinion a 20 gallon tank is WAY too small for a pictus, let alone 2.
