Gold Ring Burmese Danio (Danio tinwini)
Gold Ring Burmese Danio are known for their striking gold rings around their eyes and their shimmering silver-gold body and spotted pattern stretching from the gill to the end of the tail.
Care for Gold Ring Burmese Danios is relatively easy, making them a great choice for beginners. They prefer a well-planted aquarium with plenty of swimming space with a light to moderate strength current. They are also very active fish and require a lot of space to swim around, so a larger aquarium is recommended.
Gold Ring Burmese Danios prefer to be kept in schools of at least 6 individuals, where they will feel more comfortable and exhibit their natural behaviors. They prefer to swim in the aquarium's middle to top levels and are active fish, constantly swimming and exploring their surroundings.
Gold Ring Burmese Danios are peaceful fish that can be kept with other peaceful fish, making them a great addition to a community tank with livebearers, dwarf gouramis, tetras, and cory catfish. They are not known to be fin nippers, but like most Danios, they will pester other fish if they are in undersized schools. They will be fine in a community tank as long as you keep them with 6 or more of their own species and ensure the aquarium is not overcrowded.
When it comes to their diet, Gold Ring Burmese Danios are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods, including flake, frozen, and live foods. Their diet should be supplemented with high-quality pellets or flakes to ensure they receive all necessary nutrients.
If you're looking to add these captivating and exotic fish to your aquarium, they require a minimum tank size of 10 gallons (38 liters) and a pH range of 6.0-8.0. The water temperature should be kept between 72-79°F (22-26°C), and the hardness range should be between 5-19 dGH.
