Above: The picture above shows a young premium quality Orange Rosy Barb, swimming in one of our aquariums, when one of us took this picture.
This is a very hardy fish, very colorful, very active, and not aggressive aquarium fish. Highly recommended.
Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include, other smaller Barbs, Rainbowfish, Danios, small Gouramis, and many other small to medium size aquarium fish. Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.
Temperature: Orange Rosy Barbs can live pretty well from about 60 to 80 degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable at about 70 to 75 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.
Water Conditions: Orange Rosy Barbs seem to be tolerant of a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 7 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US has a higher pH and is harder but seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water.
Decor: Orange Rosy Barbs do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.
Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 350B Filter in an aquarium with 30-gallons of water is OK is the minimal set up for this fish. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.
