Danio kyathit is a small, schooling species of fish in the family Cyprinidae, native to Myanmar. Described in 1998, it is closely related to the better known Zebrafish D. rerio. A smallish cyprinoid with a maximum length of 5 cm. Females are thicker in the body, males slimmer and more streamlined. There are two recognised colour morphs, a striped form known as the Orange Finned Danio, and a spotted form known by the common name Ocelot Danio, which may be confused with the Leopard Danio. Individual fish may show variations in markings intermediate between the spotted and striped forms.
