What a fantastic fish species! They are truely stunning with their long flowing barbs. These fish do require a larger set up with plenty of plants so navigate around creates a lovely environment for them to thrive in.
They require a nice, well oxygenated tank with good clean water. We suggest a large filter which will create a good amount of flow across the whole tank.
These fish are a great shoaling species and should be brough in groups of 6 or more. They really shouldnt be brought in smaller numbers.
Try to avoid smaller fish species to share the tank with and they can be known to nip.
