Barilius barna (Banded hill trout)

Large, schooling fish from fast flowing waters. These fish are cyprinids closely related to the barbs, but superficially resemble trout.

This species is blue-silver with a series of nine thick dark bands on the flanks.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Because these fish are big, active, and predatory, they need to be kept in a suitably large aquarium. They like live foods such as earthworms but will also take frozen bloodworms, pellets, and large flakes.

Not commonly bred. These fish need to be conditioned at a low temperaure (around 15C) and then gradually warmed to around 24C. Eggs are scattered among plants and unguarded. The fry can be raised on small live foods
