are they dyed? The guy at the store said they were not dyed but i can not find any info on them.
I have not heard of them, but they sound a lot like cherry barbs. A photo description would help a lot.
Did they look like albino tiger barbs, but pink-colored? If so, they're probably dyed.
A picture would help
Here is a picture i don't have a good camera.
i found this picture on google....http://www.segrestfarms.com/index.c...602&BARB-TIGER-RED-REG-PUNTIUS-TETRAZONA.html
To me it just looks like a color variant. The eyes are red, so its not dipped, and to tattoo the whole fish red would take too long. Also, I've seen ones with black in them. So, I think its natural. Looks pretty neat
They look like a pink strain of albino tiger barbs... they're pretty cute.
I haven't heard of them but there darn cute!
It's a barb hybrid - probably a black ruby/rosy cross.
