The Kyathit Orange Finned Danio is a very attractive fish best described perhaps as the Zebra Danio Danio rerio in “High Definition.” The Kyathit Orange Finned Danio boasts a similarly striped pattern to the Zebra Danio but differs from the classic freshwater favorite by sporting irregular spotted or continuous horizontal stripes that stretch from the gill to the end of the tail compared to the uniform stripes of the Zebra Danio. Also, the overall silver-gold body coloration of the Kyathit Orange Finned Danio appears to be accentuated by a warm copper orange glow with the perimeter of the body showing off the deepest orange coloration - especially the dorsal, anal and caudal fins.
Native to the rivers and tributaries of Myanmar, wild Kyathit Orange Finned Danios are found in a variety of habitats, ranging from fast-moving streams to slow-moving, nearly stagnant ponds. In the home aquarium, this member of the Cyprinidae family prefers a well-planted aquarium with large, open areas for swimming. House the Kyathit Orange Finned Danio in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons or larger aquascaped with live plants, rocks and driftwood. Darker substrate will help bring out best coloration.
