This is my other Babies, had them for a couple of years and hopefully will have them for some more years to come. No full tank shot as front glass was a bit dirty on the outside(waterspilling etc). Have different coloured Malawi's and the 02 Oscars as well as some "Cleaner Fish" and an Eel inside the tank. Will update some time- I know how you guys just LOVE Freshwater fish....LoL

They are very cool and not as agressive as oscars and malawis, i think you get 3 tipes i only have two tipes the silver one and one that is a bit redish.
They seem to get along fine with bala sharks, silver dollars, paratfish and rainbow sharks.
They are very piecefull and only swim from side to side.:yeahdude:
o ja and they grow very fast.

Tinfoil Barb
Family: Cyprinidae
location: Southeast Asia
Size: 35cm
Diet: Omnivorous,small inverts,live or frozen, suplemented with green veg matter
water con: 22-25C; ph 6.5-7.0 ; dH 10
Swimming level: middel
Breeding: egs scattered

Young specimens of this magnificent soecies are often bought by novice aquarists and placed in the prized community tank, where, afte a few weeks, they proceed to devour all insite( food and plants),rapidly outgrowing their companions until it becomes necessary to rehouse them.
to keep this fish you need a big tank and good filtration to clear the debris they stir up when foraging for food;use a soft substrate because they dig

They jump! make sure aquarium is covered, and try to avoid any sudden movements or noises that my startel them.

I hope this helps:)

Thanks Lanzo, but then I'd rather stick with the hardy fish I have as they "tend" to leave the plants alone, just need to stock up on some plants again. Thank you for the effort

Hey sean, those are lovely fish! I had malawis a couple of years ago, couldn't stand their aggression and traded them in. I'm thinking of restocking my main FW tank with bigger fish but i rather get another tank to keep a few of them again, they have a wonderful personality (apart from aggression!).

Thanks Lanzo, but then I'd rather stick with the hardy fish I have as they "tend" to leave the plants alone, just need to stock up on some plants again. Thank you for the effort
They do?! Whew man, mine wrecked my plants! ate them up or else uprooted them. I can't believe you actually managed to keep the plants, what plants are they?

This is a sad day for me View attachment 117960

She spend 9 years with us and I think her 1st 03 years with a friend who gave her to us.

Sadly she is no more. She battled the last 02 - 03 days staying up, and 05 minutes ago she laid her head down for the last time. I will definitely miss this one, now I only have the male left
