Dario dario is a native fish and best part I have have caught it before in ponds or 'pukur' as we say it in bengali language with heavy vegetation in my home town. Ideal tank ratio for a 1ft. cube (just considering it generally) 1:3 M/F ratio. Very choosy eaters! will accepts live food only (preferred microworms) dryfood only if it's like minute granules pre-soaked in garlic juice. Please provide hiding places to avoid direct aggression as post spawning the become super territorial. I personally know the person who exports them to US/UK/Germany from India (again, he's from my home town) and take it from me - hardly females go down there, they are only send to specific LFS when asked if they want a self sustaining supply for the locality,so female chances - tough!

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.
