Black ruby barb's are mostly black with a little red in the tail.
Note..in fish tank's at store,,they may look just like tiger barb's but once settled in your/my tank and enough males/females,,they look cool (black).

Some of the lake Victoria cichlids have solid black males. Most of the males of genus Elassoma (the pygmy sunfish) have black and blue males. Zoonogeticus tequila, a goodeid, has dark grey (if not black) males with a yellow tail.

I have a mostly black with some very dark blue cichlid hapse , painted the back wall of my tank black looks good with white sand , but now its hard to see the fish he blends in so well and he's 4 plus inches.

Diana it is 125 gallons. Right now it has the white skirts, I wanna say 6 of them. 20 neons, an albino rainbow shark and I put 10 tiger barbs in it today.

I do like Angelfish but the addition of the Tiger Barbs pretty much rules them out, so the search continues.

***I know the neons and barbs may be a problem in the future. (The barbs are smaller than the neons right now) I can move the neons.
