Kyathit / Orange Fin Danio (Brachydanio kyathit) – Group of 5 Fish


A beautifully patterned relative of the classic Zebra Danio, the Kyathit or Orange Fin Danio originates in shallow water habitat throughout Northern and Central Myanmar. In the wild, they are found in medium to large schools in clear, fast moving water, typically near aquatic vegetation. In the aquarium, they are hardy and adaptable but prefer plenty of open swimming space and are an active schooler, most comfortable in groups of 5 or more. With their intricate patterns and vivid orange/gold trim, the Kyathit Danio is an impressive centerpiece for a planted or aquascaped tank.
