Common name: Giant danio
Scientific name: Devario aqeuipinnatus
Distribution: India and Nepal
Habitat: Fast flowing hillstreams
Temperature: 70 - 78°F
pH: 6.0 – 8.5
Adult size: 5 inches
Diet: Unfussy omnivore that will readily take all sorts of dried, frozen, and live foods
Conspecifics: Active schooler that does best in large groups of at least 6-10, individuals may be nippy towards tankmates if numbers are too small.
Tankmates: Good dither fish for larger cichlid species as they generally keep to the upper levels. May bother slow or timid fish with trailing fins such as smaller gouramis.
Notes: Like its smaller cousins, Devario aequipinnatus is incredibly hardy and adaptable to a wide range of water conditions, although these fish do best in somewhat cooler waters (70-76°F) with a good amount of current. Strongly prioritize a long tank, since a school of Devario aequipinnatus demands considerable horizontal swimming space as the fish constantly race back and forth along the length of the aquarium.
