These fish made their first appearance in the United States in 2003, when they were brought over from the UK. The full adult of this fish will typically have a very bright red/orange underside, except for this feature many fish keepers who haven't seen a Purple Passion before may mistake it for a Pearl Danio. Danios prefer to travel in schools and, if kept singly, can become bored and pick on other fish, but typically without any real damage.
