The present paper incorporates the technique of mass propagation of indigenous ornamental fish species with Danio aequipinnatus as the test species. For successful mass propagation of D. aequipinnatus, selection of brood stock, food and feeding schedule and breeding set-up are important criteria. Maintenance of physic- chemical parameters of the breeding tank is important in the survival of the breeders. Best fertilization rate were obtained with 3:2 male to female ratio.
