denisonii Barbs

A few weeks ago, I purchased some Red Line Torpedo Barbs (Puntius denisonii). They are growing and look a lot happier now than when they first arrived. They are very colorful and playful and almost always travel as a school. I've decided they are one of my better picks ...

Here's a few pics ...









Thanks for lookin'!

I just got a batch of a dozen. Funny thing is, since they are still quite young, they would just school together with adult rummy nose tetra that are roughly half the size.

It is a good idea to give some ample space John, the old ones I have sure do reach 14-15cm and need that swimming space.

I love these fish! I can't wait to get a bigger tank and have a larger school like yours. Your pics are good motivation. Thats a cool piece of wood.

Here is a pic of my two. Yours has alot more red on its dorsal than mine.
I wonder if thats because they are in a bigger school?

Love the coloration of these fish. Do you find them to be a delicate or overly sensitive to water parameters?

Greg, not at all. They've a great appetite and are in the thick of things, seems like they're interested in everything around them. They're just busy all the time and entertaining to watch.
