although the danios look cute you should totally look into getting some dwarf puffers, they do great in small tanks and they're awesome fish to have. i've heard they might get alot with the shrimp but i wouldn't risk it.
DP's are great, they're super adorable!

I dont mean to be critisising in any way here but arent those Danios a rare and endangered species ? If I were you Id try to get them to spawn for the continueing of the species. BTW I really love what youve done with the wood letting it stick out of the water like that.

I'm pleased you like the wood, I really wanted something that was 'thinking outside the box'.
If you look at my ten gallon (just set up, link in sig) I've changed my mind about the danios in the pico and set up a ten gallon tank for them to spawn in. So, yes, you're right about them and I am going to try and breed them...which I have been told is not so difficult. If the pet trade hadn't demanded so many of them so soon they wouldn't be endangered, which is sad.
I've never had luck with them. I know they like salt, but even then they don't seem to thrive for me (back when I was trying them in a larger tank). I'm not sure what I do wrong, but they normally don't live more than a few months for me. I've only tried them twice, but each time they did no good even with salt. All my levels were perfect and all the other fish (Endler's and neons) did just fine. I will admit that the tank was not full brackish and I don't want to have to brackish this one.
Any advice on them? Cause I do love them.
I'm starting to lean towards something really tiny like embers or perhaps long fin white clouds
