Introducing the Orange-finned Danio, scientifically known as Danio kyathit, a must-have addition to any aquarium enthusiast's collection. With its elongated body and striking yellow to orange colorations, this fish is sure to captivate and mesmerize any onlooker.
These active swimmers are distinguished by the 5 to 7 stripes that run over the sides of their bodies, which can be either dotted or striped, and the anal fin that features one or two additional orange stripes. Their dynamic movements and bright colors create a lively and energetic atmosphere in any aquarium.
Orange-finned Danios are best kept in a spacious aquarium that provides them with enough open space to swim and thrive. They are known to jump out of the water, so a secure lid is necessary to keep them safe.
These playful and social fish make excellent companions to other peaceful species and are easy to care for, making them suitable for both beginner and experienced aquarists.
In summary, the Orange-finned Danio is a magnificent species that is sure to add a splash of color and excitement to any aquarium. With its unique markings and active personality, it's a fish that is sure to capture the hearts of all who encounter it.
Our Danios eat twice per day. In the mornings, they receive NorthFin Flake and mixed Pellets. In the evenings, they get live foods: daphnia and live baby brine shrimp.

I wish I could edit my previous review, so I'm posting an update! I've had these orange-finned danios now for 6 weeks, and I adore them! They are all super healthy (fattening up nicely), lively, and extremely friendly! I couldn't be happier with my new additions!
We were surprised to see two orange finned danios show up with our order. First I want to thank Flip Aquatics for the bonus fish. Secondly, they are beautiful fish.
The balance of our order was perfect. All fish are healthy and doing well. Great service as well, Flip Aquatics was able to meet our preferred delivery day.
Will definitely be my go to online fish source going forward!
I never heard of this fish and honestly ordered 3 on a whim. I'm housing it in a 22 gal. long with out fish such as CPDs, chili rasboras, micro corydoras. They are generally peaceful and super energetic and ravenous eaters. There is 1 alpha male who sometimes chases other fishes but doesn't seem to go too far to the degree of causing physical harm and it doesn't happen all the time. Very beautiful fish with orange tips - the pics on Flip Aquatics don't do it justice. Highly recommend if you have the room for them! They were a bit bigger than I expected. Perhaps 1.5 times bigger than a white cloud mountain minnow.
Just took a couple hours to color up and feel right at home in their new tank! Good quality and healthy fish.
All 15 orange-finned danios arrived alive and well! Great shipping experience from flipaquatics. The only reason I took a star off is because some of the fish arrived very skinny, and one was missing a huge chunk of its tail. However, nothing very concerning and I was so pleased to see how active they were, even while still in their shipping bags! Highly recommend this fish and flipaquatics.
