Cherry Barb 3cm

Cooranbong Aquatics


Different from other typical Barbs due to the fact that their bodies are less plump and more slender, Cherry Barbs are beautiful creatures that certainly add a unique element to any fish tank.

While on usual days, a Cherry Barb is silver or gray in color, the males tend to turn into a shimmering bright cherry red color during spawning time, a fact that explains the name given to this adorable water mate.

Incredibly cheery and active, Cherry Barbs are a great addition to your tank if you are looking for a peaceful fish that gets along with other fishes as well as adds a degree of activity to your tank. Although they are generally very active swimmers and like to have ample space to do so, they are also timid and shy and like to have adequate amounts of hiding spaces in the form of rocks and plants.
