Jewel Danio have a high chance to be caught from Jewel Danio Schools, which can be found on the Timeless Isle. They also have a common chance to be caught when fishing in open water on the isle with high enough fishing skill. Prior to Patch 5.4 and Garrosh Hellscream's destruction of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, they were found exclusively in that zone. When almost all of the lakes and rivers were drained in the shockwave of Garrosh throwing the Heart of Y'Shaarj into the waters in front of Mogu'shan Palace, Cloud Serpents were able to save them from extinction by transporting them in little buckets to the Timeless Isle.
It is a highly-prized cooking material in that it is an ingredient in the most powerful raid feast items of the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
The Jewel Danio's favorite treats are fireflies that fly low on the water.
