Barbus lateristriga (Spanner Barb)
This species is a relatively large but peaceful fish that fits nicely into community tanks containing sturdy but peaceful fish. Large gouramis, non-predatory catfish, and the more docile cichlids would all work well with this fish.
Essentially a yellowy-silver fish, somewhat deep bodied, and with two vertical black bands at the front and a horizontal black band that runs from just behind the gills to the base of the tail.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Sturdy and undemanding, this fish should be kept in groups of five or more specimens. It will eat most foods, but ideally offer it a mixture of meaty and vegetable foods. Bloodworms, vegetarian flake, and blanched lettuce would make ideal staples. It will eat small fish!
Not commonly bred in captivity due to its size, but relatively easy to spawn in the same way as other barbs.
