Funny rosy barb wagging its tail like a puppy

Damian19

Hi,the other day I got a rosy barb from a local pet store.At the store they named the rosy barb a red fire barb.Lately my barb has been acting like a pitbull puppy that I used to have that was really wild and cute. My barb goes on about his day just swimming around,going up against the glass,and across the tank like a wild puppy.Is this normal behaviour for a rosy barb?

Hello Damian,

Your Rosey Barb may be a bit lonely. It's suggested that they be kept in schools of 5 or more and this will also help curb some of the nipping that Barbs are known for. Link below:
