Snakeskin Barb
(Puntius rhombocellatus)

Common names:
Snakeskin Barb, Rhomb Barb, Rhombo Barb.

Size: 5cm

pH: 5.0 – 7.0

Tempº: 23ºC - 28ºC

Tank region: Middle Bottom layer

Origin: Indonesia.

Gender: Males are smaller and have more intense colouration.

Notes: The exotic looking Snakeskin barb is quite hard to find in Fish Shops, but is much sought after by aquarists. It has a small size, peaceful temperament and beautiful markings. All Barbs need to be kept in schools of at least 6, and the Snakeskin is no exception. It will enjoy planted tanks which provide plenty of cover, and takes small flake and pellet foods.
