Silver Barb

Silver barbs are identified by their silvery-white color and are medium to large fish in size as per description. Other similar species in length but smaller include the Tinfoil barb a freshwater fish which is known by its scientific name (Barbonymus schwanenfeldii). Smaller species have a similar color but a more golden-like hue with a less pronounced stripe. Black barbs also have silvery-white scales and can appear to be similar in some aspects, however, it is important to note the black barb has large black spots which make up around half of its body (located on gill plates, dorsal fin, and on part of anal fin). Black barbs also have a serrated dorsal fin.Silver barbs are often used for aquariums as they are easy to care for but preferable in larger groups of five or more fish. They are peaceful fish that can be housed with other species if kept in similar-sized groups, however, the tank must be at least 20 gallons (75 l) in size. They are popular due to their peaceful nature and hardy, easy to care for personalities. Their silver color is also appreciated by aquarium owners. They require open swimming space with dense vegetation as per preference. Silver barbs enjoy plants within the tank, however, they can be sensitive to changes in the aquarium. Silver barbs are schooling fish and enjoy the company of their own kind. They can be housed with other species but should not be placed with fish that may prey on them, such as larger fish including Oscars, or even smaller fish that may eat their fins or fry. They do well when kept in groups of five to eight and perhaps more. A minimum of 20 gallons (75 l) is needed for a school of five to eight fish, however, they will thrive in larger aquariums with room to swim and dense vegetation. Silver barbs are easy to feed and eat most types of sinking food such as pellets or flakes. They should be fed at least twice daily and especially enjoy live foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, tubifex worms, daphnia as per preference. Fish food is often supplemented with vegetables or plant matter as silver barbs enjoy these types of food as well. They may not accept dried vegetable matter initially but should be willing to eat it after time. They will not eat algae and if algae growth begins to occur, a solution of romaine lettuce that has been boiled should be fed as the vegetable matter will absorb the nutrients from the algae and aid in its reduction.
