Zebra Danio will eat a large variety of foods. Flake food for tropical fish is a good staple for them. They will also eat fish eggs and young fry they can find.

Danio breed rather heavily and a lot of energy is spent in this process. For this reason any food you give them should be high in protein. Brine shrimp is a prized food for all fish since it is high in proteins and other nutrients.

Feedings should be small and often. 4 or 5 small feedings are better then 1 or 2 large feedings. Feeding them as much as they will eat in a minute or two several times a day will keep them healthy and strong.
