Area: Inhabits the upper reaches of the Chaung River, a tributary of the Irrawaddy River, northern Myanmar (formerly Burma).
Water temperature: 22-26.
Size in the aquarium: 2-3 cm.
The recommended volume of aquarium for a group of 50 liters.
Danio tinwini (Danio tinwini) is a moving, peaceful, schooling fish, keeping mainly in the middle and lower layers of water. It is one of the smallest representatives of its kind, males reach the size
2.5 cm. Fish are sometimes sold as a danio burmese, but this is not a correct name, because Burmese danios are a completely different fish.
Danio Tinwini has a unique color pattern of three rows of irregular dark spots along the sideline against a golden body background. The fins are also painted with dark spots.
Unpretentious to the composition of the food. Accepts most of the appropriately sized feeds popular in aquariums. It can be dry flakes, granules and / or live or frozen bloodworms, Artemia, daphnia, etc.
The size of the aquarium for the flock of 8-10 fish should start from 40 liters. Registration is arbitrary, provided that the dark soil and a large number of aquatic plants are used.
The presence of snags and other natural elements is welcome. The lighting is muffled.
It is noted that with an excess of light in a half-empty tank, the fishes become faded.
Danio Tinvini is able to live with moderate flow and needs clean oxygen-rich water. In turn, the rich flora can produce a lot of excess organic matter in the form of dying leaves, and also lead to an excess of carbon dioxide at night, when photosynthesis stops, and the plants begin to consume the oxygen produced during the day.
Perhaps the best solution would be artificial plants.
To maintain ecological balance, it is necessary to install a productive filtration and aeration system and regularly maintain the aquarium. The latter usually includes several standard procedures: weekly replacement of a part of water for fresh water, cleaning of soil from organic waste (excreta, food remains), equipment prevention, control and maintenance of stable pH and dGH values.
Active peace-loving fish. Compatible with other non-aggressive species of comparable size. Any large fish, even if it is vegetarian, should be excluded.
Danio “Golden Rings” prefer to be in a group of at least 8–10 individuals. A smaller amount adversely affects the behavior, and in some cases, for example, single or pair content, leads to a significant reduction in life expectancy.
Golden rings reach their maturity of danios at the age of 5-6 months.
In general, spawning of these fish in an aquarium is quite simple. Fish spawn almost all year round in the aquarium in which they constantly live.
Females spawn chaotically among the thickets of plants. Producers do not show any concern for their future offspring, and if no measures are taken to preserve caviar, they will certainly be eaten by them.
In this regard, it is advisable to replant the spawners in the spawning aquarium with a volume of about 10-20 liters, at the bottom of which you need to place a separator grid.
Caviar is incubated for 24-36 hours, and after 2 days, the hatched fry begin to swim and eat. Fry are fed with artemia and dry food intended for fry.
