What a Deal -- I Think
Just bought 6 tinfoil barbs for $5 -- all 7" long or longer. What was I thinking?

how big's the tank? they can get pretty big, at least a foot! sounds pretty sweet tho, i love big fishies!

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.:smoke: Barbs would love you for that.:love: 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?

Quite possibly :D (and I'd love to see a fish with hair!!)
