Denisoni Barb Red Striped Torpedo Sahyadria denisoni 5cm +

Description

Denisoni Barb, also known as Red Striped Torpedo or Sahyadria denisoni, is a popular and striking freshwater fish species native to the fast-flowing hill streams of the Western Ghats in India. These fish are known for their vibrant red and black lateral stripes, torpedo-shaped bodies, and distinctive forked tail fins, making them a visually appealing addition to community aquariums.

Here are the care details for Denisoni Barb:

  1. Temperature: Denisoni Barbs thrive in a tropical temperature range between 72°F and 79°F (22°C to 26°C).

  2. Minimum tank size: Due to their active nature and size, it is recommended to keep Denisoni Barbs in a tank that is at least 55 gallons (208 liters) or larger. A larger tank will provide ample swimming space and accommodate their schooling behavior.

In their natural habitat, Denisoni Barbs are accustomed to fast-flowing, well-oxygenated waters with rocky substrates. Therefore, in an aquarium environment, they will appreciate a setup that replicates these conditions. It is essential to include ample open swimming space along with some plants and driftwood for cover. They are a schooling fish, so keeping them in groups of at least six or more is advisable to promote their natural behavior and minimize stress.

Denisoni Barbs are omnivores and will readily accept high-quality flake food, as well as live and frozen foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia. Providing a varied diet will ensure their optimal health and vibrant coloration.

Understanding and maintaining the specific water parameters, tank size, and dietary needs are crucial for the well-being and vibrant display of Denisoni Barbs in a home aquarium.
