Pet Danios / Minnows for Sale

Pet Danios / Minnows For Sale

The genus Danio comprises many of the species of danionins familiar to aquarists. The common name "danio" is used for members of the genera Danio and Devario. The name Danio comes from the Bangla name dhani, meaning "of the rice field". Danio was described in the early 19th century by Francis Hamilton, a surgeon working for the British East India Company. Two of the species included by him in the genus, still remain valid — Danio rerio and Danio dangila. About a century later (1916) and with many more species described in the meantime, the genus was split; the larger species into Danio and the smaller species, such as D. rerio, into the new Brachydanio. In 1991, though, the two genera were recombined; most larger species formerly within the Danio genus, such as the giant danio, have now been reclassified into the Devario genus. Also, Brachydanio is now a junior synonym of Danio.
