this is a lot of fish, what size tank is this?
oceangirl, thanks for suggestionsthis is a lot of fish, what size tank is this?
Swords need lots of horizontal space, and Danios are VERY active. You need LOTS of objects in there, so when fights happen the victim can escape. Also you need lots of room, you would need a 30 or more gallon for all these guys!!
probably, i should return the danios to the lfs. i think the other fishes cant compete with danios during feeding if i get 8 of them :-(Oh, yes, and the danios need to be upped to 8 or more, or else the inter-danio violence will continue. Schooling/shoaling fish often turn on each other if kept in excessively small groups.
