These little barbs are a fantastic community fish. Unlike many other barbs they are extremely peaceful and can be kept with other small fish such as Neon Tetras.
They look a little like Tiger Barbs due to their stripes, but in fact their colour is a bit more complicated. The base background colour is orange, overlapped by stripes that are actually a very dark green.
