Specifications

The Black Ruby Barb's main body is an ombre from red to black. They are a very lively, playful fish that prefers to be in schools.

They prefer a well-planted tank of at least 100 litres with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming.

The Black Ruby Barb is a very active fish that may pester or even nip the fins of larger, slower moving fish.

It is best, when trying to breed the Black Ruby Barb, to house a number of Barbs in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, the female will lay the eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize.

The fry will be free-swimming after about 5 days. Feed the fry newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food.

The Black Ruby Barb needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.
