It is a pretty new fish to the hoby, is rare and endangered, and has not been bred in captivity yet, apart from in ponds....
How often does Petsmart have the 50% sale on Barbs?Petsmart usually has them.
I own 2.
I wait for the 1/2 off or so sales and try to catch them with some left.
Took 5 months to time it right and get the last 2 lol.
Paid I think 5 bucks each vs 10 or whatever the normal price was.
I managed to get a lot of Tetra for their 50% sales of Tetra(it may still be going on). I did not know they rotate that sale to Barbs. I know the normal fish price at Petsmart without any sales is pretty high.It's just their normally rotating sales.
You just have to catch it at the right time!
I managed to get lucky once lol
Also have to be part of their pet perks thing or no sale price.
It's the same for any fish.

A price is a price on either side of the hobby. Don't pay any price until you've shopped for what you're interested in. It really is that simple.Why are Denson Barbs So expensive. Recently $40 from liveaquaria.com before being reduced.
Most barbs are under $5 I think.
$40 for a fish is getting into the Salt water fish territory.
You all made me go and buy a full priced 10.00 pet smart one as he was all alone with danios and pale and I felt sorry and brought him home to be with my 2.
Hope he recovers. Expensive charity case if not lol.
