Best temperature

Pretty much explains itself really. If you have questions about tank set-ups, tank furniture, (caves etc) chuck them in here!

I keep my adults at 28degrees, they also breed here on this temperature.
The tank with fry is kept slightly higher at 30 degrees.

What about when your doing water changes, do you use cold water or same temperature water, and how often do you do changes on younger zebra tanks ?

My pre-prepared water is slighty colder than the water in the tank, about 27 degrees.
Young zebra's need some extra food, so the water is a little bit more spoiled than normally.
I do a water exchange about 30 % every day. This is important, if you want the juveniles grow up very evenly !
