New R/T Dither Fish

After the sad and extremely unusual & freaky demise of our River-Tank's Dither Fish the other weekend, I've been on the look out for something different in the way of dithers to replace them.

Today, I was in Big Als branch at Steeles in Toronto and saw 14 "Purple Passion Danios" in one tank at a reasonable price. So I asked if I was interested in relieving them of their entire stock what might the price be? The fishroom manager said he could save me the tax (15%) , so a deal was struck!

So now the shoal is swimming around in the flow of the powerheads and loving it! And guess what? I did some searching around and finally got a proper ID on them......Danio roseus.....and check out where they like to live :)

Ideal River-Tank dithers methinks.

Martin.
