    These have been out of quarantine and in this tank for a week now, spawning like crazy! snapped a few quick pics and a vid to share. I’ve never been a danio fan but I’m lovin’ these! Difficult to photograph though.

    Great pics Jim! Better than I was ever able to manage, you’ve captured the colour brilliantly

    Are you planning to raise any fry?

    I’d love to at some point, any tips? I’m dealing with 50 or so (impossible to count) m. kamaka frye at the moment. When I get them dispersed maybe I’ll throw in a mop and see what happens??

    Hmm I’d be more tempted to throw a pair or two into a separate tank with lots of Java moss or similar and remove post spawning rather than use mops. Pretty sure Mick has done these?

    Nice fish and great pics –

    actually seen them offered in a shop near me last week but was dubious if they really were Tinwin or not??? No pics

    I think your right Matt, I am certain Mick did breed the tinwini. I was surprised to find some youngsters in my tank, there are only the tinwini and Y. cruciatus in there but it is quite heavily planted with java moss, java fern and some floating plants and as per usual the rock piles

    Hi Plaamoo, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the fry made adult hood ?

    Mick definitely did spawn Tinwini !

    A number of years ago Mick gave me half a dozen Spotted Danio [ B.nigrofasciatus] which I put in a small 18x12x12 tank ,I ended up with about 70 fish of varying sizes ,and I never removed the parents !

    I think me and Mick had a bit of a thing about Danios back then ? I did the Choprae’s and gave my young to Mick , and he then did tons of em !

    Thanks all, I’m going to add some more pebbles for eggs to fall into, & I’m trying to catch the little sicyopus in the tank to relocate it. Maybe with just the s. semoni and a few small g. zebrinas a frye or two might have a chance.

    I ended up making these little dishes to catch the eggs of my D. tinwini… DIY egg trap
