This small peaceful barb from Sri Lanka is an excellent community fish. Best kept in a small school in a planted aquarium. They rarely show their full colours if housed in a sparsely decorated aquarium. Grows to about 5cm.

The Barb is an active, colourful and popular aquarium fish. They are easy to feed, taking a wide variety of foods including dried food.

Barbs will command your attention! They enjoy swimming all over the tank at breakneck pace. Like many tropical fish, the male is generally more colourful, while the female is less colourful.

Barbs will school when in a group of at least five or six, and are less likely to bother other fish when in a group together. Many species are considered unsuitable in aquaria with slow-moving, long-finned tankmates.
