Just like my catfish threads, I'll be regularly posting photos of my barbs here.
I keep cherry barbs and recently some melon barbs.

First set here are my melon barbs, who are still juveniles and still developing the adult colouration. Ive got a group of 6 of them. Will see how they get along and how many males to females I have and perhaps get a couple more. Not very shy these guys, very active and inquisitive. Peaceful, though they do chase one another often, they still also group together.

My cherry barbs are a little shy, so often harder to get nice closeups of them.
I have 6, with one male and five females. My male is sometimes really pale pink-brown and other times he brightens up to a bright red patchy pink.
Theyre a very peaceful bunch, very content to chill in the plants

Thumbs up to all barbs but Tigers. Even then,those day glo ruby Tigers actually look great. If I see them ever again,one barb that was a favorite and I would raise them was the Arulius barb,one of those 4" barbs that was red white and blue, and males had long streamers on their dorsal fins. Showy,peaceful fish.

Tigers are pretty and all but they gotta be kept properly. Not an easy beginner fish lol

The melons are very peaceful fish, active too.
