Caring for your Rosy Barb

I’m perfect for community tanks, as I have quite a peaceful temperament, although I am a known fin nipper. I should be kept in groups with at least five of my own kind as I will feel stressed if I’m kept alone. I should be kept with at least two females to each male.

As I’m omnivorous I will help to control algae in the tank, but my favourite food is King British Tropical Flake (with IHB). As an occasional treat, I like anything that will fit in my mouth, especially King British Bloodworm Treats.
