Golden Barb/Chinese Barb (Barbodes semifasciolatus)
Please check stock availability before ordering
Originating from the Red River basin in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam, this fish is known worldwide as the Chinese barb, but the species is naturally green in color. The gold-colored, captive-bred variant is highly popular in the aquarium trade, giving rise to the name gold barb, by which it is commonly sold. It is a flashy, peaceful fish for a community tank, but in the wild, this man-made shiny coloring would make it quick prey for predators.
Ideal water parameters, pH 6.8 to 7.4 temperature 60-76f
Feeding, Golden barbs will eat a variety of foods. Feed a varied diet of frozen food, freeze dried and flake foods.
