I agree the barb has been the victim of relentless attacks. But it might have come from more than one of the other fish.

The Red Tailed Shark can behave like this, as i have frequently tried to get others to recognize. But so can the Chinese Algae Eater (the white fish in the photos). Either of them have a habit of taking a dislike to upper fish. To be safe, I wold re-home both the shark and the algae eater. Then consider appropriate fish to stock your tank. Our profiles give compatibility issues for each species.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
