This listing is for one Rosy Barb, Known for their stunning appearance, Rosy Barbs boast a silvery or coppery-pink color with a green cast along the back. Males exhibit more pink on their underbellies. Hardy, undemanding, and constantly active, they make an ideal choice for beginners. In aquariums, they typically reach around 10 cm, but their energetic nature and jumping ability necessitate covering the tank.
When kept in a school, male Rosy Barbs engage in intriguing behavior, swimming around each other with fins spread to display vibrant colors. Prolific breeders, they require a breeding tank with shallow water.
A fantastic addition to most tanks, Rosy Barbs adapt well to changing water conditions and are hearty eaters. They prefer cooler aquariums, making careful consideration necessary when selecting tankmates to avoid fin-nipping. Their omnivorous diet includes live, fresh, and flake foods, with a high-quality flake food as a daily staple. Treats like live or frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms can be offered, supplemented with color foods for enhanced appearance. Feedings should be limited to what they can consume in 5 minutes for once-daily sessions or 3 minutes for multiple daily feedings.
