165. Zebra Danios: Saving the World One Fish at a Time
/

In this episode, we take a focused look at zebra danios, AKA zebrafish or Danio rerio. Zebra danios are one of the most iconic aquarium fish due to their hardiness, abundance, and high energy. Because of this, aquarists can often view them as beginner fish, but they’re so much more than that. Charles and the Water Colors team discuss the use of zebrafish as model organisms for genetic research, and how they could be the link to some incredible breakthroughs in modern science. We’ll also take a look at some breeding techniques used in laboratory settings, as well as some fascinating behaviors exhibited by one of the most overlooked species in the aquarium hobby.
