I have kept Longfin Leopard Danios in sets of 5 for 3 years. They are very good to start with. I don't know why they would go to the bottom of the aquarium under the gravel along with its other buddies. They have been disappearing one at a time after 2 and half years already.

I started with just two longfin leopard danios and luckily got a male and female. When the females belly looked as if she was pregnant I moved both to a 3 gallon tank for about 3-4 days and when she went back to normal size I then moved them both back to the 50 gallon with my other tropicals. I now have about 80-90 babies. Almost microscopic at first, and about the size of a newborn guppy now after almost 2 months. Love these fish, a lot of fun to watch play.

I have been keeping a Longfin Leopard Danios for a while and they do really good with Lyretail Mollys.
