Rosy Barb " Puntius conchonius"


Rosy barbs are both peaceful and colourful, and make an excellent addition to most aquariums. Tolerant of temperature, these medium to large sized barbs are suited to tropical and temperate aquariums where the temperature ranges from 18-25 degrees Celsius. We recommend groups of at least 4 although 8+ is preferred if you have the space. These social fish are less likely to bother other tankmates if their own school is large enough to occupy them. They can grow up to 6 inches in the wild  but rarely reach that size in home aquariums, still we recommend an aquarium of at least 60l to grow on and 125l before reaching adult size.
