    I have. Similar behavior as zebra dartfish. Does NOT do well as an individual. Always hides. Half dozen will be out swimming around all the time. Mine ate whatever i put in. Tend to stay in lower part of tank. These guys JUMP. If you don't have a cover you wont have them for long.
    I have had blues and zebra darts. I like the zebras better. They are not as skittish. They school more and are constantly displaying. I have 9 at the present time. They tend to stay high up in the water colum too. If you get any of the blues, get at least 5 or 6 or you will never see them. Average about 3-4 inches long. Does not handle agression well. Just hides all the time and fades away
