Right now they are in my 180g, What do I do With These Fish?, tank. I'll figure out exactly where(and what) to put them permanently later. I never was a big barb guy. Still not. But I've got'em now. They are pretty good looking, for a silver fish with red tails.

You might have to provide them lots of greens. Barbs would love you for that. Any plants you place there will just get eaten.

I always used large tinfoils for target fish. They can take quite a beating as long as they have enough room to run.

They eat like silver cows and poop like crazy. good luck with yours.

If I would quit buying fish I could afford a good camera. The one I have now makes everything look like it has hair!!!!! lol But I think I've got to have at least two of everything. Do you think Noah had feelings similar to mine?
