Puntius titteya (Cherry Barb)

A common barb that is often found in shops. They are peaceful but territorial Keep in a large group (ten or more specimens), otherwise small numbers of fish tend to become territorial.

Females are a dull brown colour whilst males are red and develop a very deep red colour when in breeding condition.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Can be a little difficult to breed, Ideal water conditions for breeding are soft and slightly acidic. Place a conditioned pair into a well planted breeding tank. If they do spawn the fish will scatter their eggs on the plants which the parents will seek out and eat so always remove the parents after spawning. Once the fry are free swimming feed them on infusoria and other suitable fry foods.
