OTHER INFORMATION

Males are distinguishable by their red color. They will become very bright red, during spawning phases. Females are lighter and yellowish.

They are not as much of a schooling fish as most Barbs but should best be kept in groups of five or more. They prefer a tank with lots of plants, ornaments, rocks, etc. but also with space to school. Generally peaceful, however, young males can be aggressive.
