I haven't kept the Dennisons before but i suspect it may be the same thing with them. Maybe grow out the little fish you have first before you go for the bigger fish. Aahhhhh...I would go nuts trying to stock a 125 with community fish. So many fish I would want. lol
Yep, we go nuts and that's why we end up with so many tanks! lol.
As far as Dennisons, they were one of my very first fish. They are great fish, and even though they are in the barb family they are some of the most peaceful fish I have. Actually, they ARE the most peaceful of all my fishes.
My full grown Dennisons (6") don't go after anyone. I have kept then with neons, no problem. I trust them so much that recently I added a handful of pricey one inch dwarf cichlids to their tank without a moment's hesitation. My Congos? That's a while other story...Congos are piranhas in disguise, lol. Same goes for Columbian Tetras!!

The one in the store was absolutely beautiful. I saw it in one of their show tanks, but was like 4 inches. The he showed me the babies and I wanted them!

I wonder if that was the name though...

The Dennisons Barbs also go by the name Redline Torpedo Barb and Roseline Shark.

Ah, good call, Jeaninel. I've never see them labeled as Dennisons, always Roseline Sharks or Redline Torpedo barbs.

No wonder that didn't sound familiar.

If you get them, they need to be in a group of 6..

Also, make sure you can take care of them

In spite of being listed as Endangered by local assessment reports the fish had been promoted as an 'Export item' by several government agencies!
That said, they're pretty fish...

That's it!

You mean I have to feed them? Seriously?

I hear you! Groups of 6 ~ that I didn't know ~

They sure are pretty, aren't they? Thanks for sharing!
