YESSS. Noone believed me there was such thing (5 bands though), and now its proof!! As soon as I get a bigger tank im going into my LFS and telling my guy to order me some haha. He had never heard of the 5 banded barbs, but different places call them different things so who knows.
lol. I've had them before, so they certainly do exist.

There are only two barbs that are recommended for 10 gallon tanks. Jae Barbs look just like a rasbora, more or less like a tetra. Burmese lipstick barbs are very similar, but I can't find anything on them in Englsh.

Every other barb really needs a larger tank.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
