    Im thinking about getting a school of either Golden Barbs or Ruby Barbs for my 30g but i read that they eat plants. But i also read that the plants in my tank (anubias and java fern) are hard for fish to eat, so will they eat it or not?
    P.S should i get Golden or ruby barbs?

    I have black ruby barbs in my tank and the don't eat the plants.

    As for what kind of barbs, I am partial to the Ruby barbs but all of them are cool. They are soooo active and each one has its own personality.

    I keep tiger barbs (not on your list, I know, but a similar energy level) and java ferns together. My ferns have survived so far!
