    Hey thanks! Haha yeah I'm going to re donate the False Bandit back to my friend and buy myself maybe 2 or 3 more Bandits to add to the little school I have i think

    Would this perticular Barb be classed as a "sailfin"? MVIMG_20190625_183859.

    You know what, you might be right. Barbs are not my forte. The only barbs that I kept in the past are cherry.

    I assumed it wasn't 'Natural'. Still a beautiful sight to see though. Stands out well in the school of 6

    Wow how nice!! Really like these barb's. Are they difficult to breed? I'm tempted to go get 4 more so I have a school of 10. Can't remember my current male to female ratio without looking though

    That's good to know then I have some Java moss that I put in a few days ago, I do have a hatchling tank to put in my tank if I ever do get any babies. Only problem is the males eating the eggs I suppose!

    Remember when doing calculations from advice on fishlore that a US Gallon is not the same as a UK Gallon. 1 US Gallon is 0.832 UK Gallon.

    Thank you. It will look better as the years go on I hope. My LFS has just had some really nice black and white striped Angel fish in that get a red face when they are mature. I think they would look great in my tank. There not available until the weekend unfortunately though!
