Fighting danios

Postby IndianoAnnie » Thu Oct 25, 2012 4:44 pm

Two of my danios over the past few days have been fighting constantly, I deprecated the one that seems to be causing it for a day to settle and released him again the day after but it's getting bad again. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Annie :)

You only have 4. As a shoaling fish, they need to be in a larger group. This is not always an option in a small tank. Probably males fighting for dominance. If they are not causing each other any damage I would leave them to sort it out.
