Hypsibarbus wetmorei (Lemon Fin Barb, Pale Barb)
Large, deep bodied barbs rather similar to carp in basic appearance. The top half of the body has a distinct rusty tinge and the fins are orangey. Juveniles are more silvery than the adults, and full colouration is really only apparent on fully grown specimens.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A schooling, midwater fish found in large rivers. Peaceful, and suitable for the community tank, though perhaps not with very small fishes. Diet in the wild consists of insect larvae, algae, and general detritus. In the aquarium these fish are easy to keep omnivores.
These fish need lots of swimming space, and given their size, a large aquarium is a must. They are also very skilled jumpers, and are therefore not suitable for uncovered tanks.
Breeding not reported in aquaria.
