Barbs can be a very robust and hardy fish, often used as an introductory fish to new mature aquariums.  Easy to care for and will readily accept most foods, care must be taken however as they can nip fins and are ideally kept in large groups to quell any aggression.
Growth Size 20cm
Occuring throughout south east Asia.
Ideally kept in a good shoal of 8 or more.
Ideally slightly acidic water conditions are provided between 6.5pH - 7pH however they will happily live in conditions ranging up to pH of 7.5 or higher. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C

Tin Foil barbs are largely peaceful species, however due to the size they can attain it is best kept with larger species as smaller fish may be seen as a source of food.
