Cherry Barb

Cherry Barb

Also known as Titeja (Czech Rep), Stregbarbe (Denmark), Vishnevyi puntius (Russian Fed), or Kopparbarb (Sweden).

This species is a wonderful community fish with its subdued red coloration and its black and gold horizontal line. The timid Cherry Barb gets its name from the Cherry Red coloration during spawning, although only the male changes to this tone. Although it prefers a tank with many hiding places, the Cherry Barb also requires plenty of room to swim.
