Five Banded Barb
I see that a lot of people would like to keep Tiger Barbs but once they find out about their "warm" disposition they change their minds.
If I might, I would like to suggest this beutiful fish as an alternate choice.
They do not have the Tiger Barbs onery reputation at all, but they have similer colors and markings They stay smaller, 2" to the TB's 3". They are a great community fish IME.
They still need to be kept in school's of at least 6, more would be better. They are not as hardy as the TB but not as sensative as say a Cardinal Tetra. They are not always easy to find in LFS and i've never seen them in the big box stores.
If you see them, give them a try.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit. -Vince Lombardi
