Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit lakes and fast flowing hill streams (Ref. 4832, 41236). One of the hardiest of the barbs, undemanding and beautiful; most impressively colored during the mating period, when the normally silvery male takes on a rich claret flush and the slightly larger female becomes more luminous. Can be kept together with other small fishes. Feed on worms, crustaceans, insects and plant matter (Ref. 7020, 44894). Prolific spawners that tolerate low water temperatures (Ref. 44894). Aquarium keeping: in groups of 5 or more individuals; minimum aquarium size 80 cm (Ref. 51539).
