How many times a day should you feed danios?

You should feed danios once or twice a day. Also, make sure to only feed them what they can finish eating within two or three minutes, or you’ll risk polluting the tank’s water.

Additionally, you should provide a varied diet to keep them happy and healthy. Danios are not fussy eaters, so they’ll eat various types of food with no problem. Here are some great food choices for your danios:

  • Flakes and pellets
  • Algae wafers
  • Frozen bloodworms
  • Daphnia
  • Blackworms
  • Brine shrimp
  • Fruit flies
  • Mosquito larvae

Live and frozen foods should only be given occasionally as treats. Also, be careful when feeding them live foods. Avoid giving your danios any insect or larvae you find outside to prevent introducing parasites into the tank. You should buy live and frozen foods from reputable sources or farm them yourself.
