albino barb

hey everyone. This was so unexpected. My neighbor/best friend bought me 1 albino barb. I know they are schooling fish ive already done my research they like to be in groups of 6 or 7. But I will see how he does now he's just a little baby maybe 3/4 of an inch. so cute! But i will see if it fits in my aquarium regarding nipping and such and if not then I will have to find a different option! Just thought I would tell everyoen ! :D

i have a school of 5 in my 30g. i had 6 but one died right after i got them so prob wasn't the pic of the litter. i like them more now that I have them, we got them as a replacement for the tiger barbs we bought but are to small to live with the other fish in the 30 right now. I found that they go absolutley crazy over freeze dried tubiflex worms.

Nick, what species of barbs are they? A lot of barbs have albino morphs including the tinfoil barbs.

If those are tiger barbs, I wouldn't mix them with the angels. Neither would I do with tinfoils owing to their potential size.
