Barbs are hardy shoaling fish best for a boisterous community tank. They can be nippy so keep in groups and with other larger hardy fish. Cherry barbs are an exception and these will live happily with other passive fish. Barbs prefer slightly acidic to neutral water and will feed on a varied diet of flake, dried and frozen foods.
