Well i have restarted my barb tank after downsizing to a 45 G long. at this point it consists of 6 pygmy corys, 2 lemon spot bristlenose plecos, and 5 barbus denisonii. Also some swords, java fern, crypto, and hornwart, plus a few other plants i dont remember the names of.

for those that dont know these are a barb from india that are just barely not on the endagered list. when i bought them 2 years ago they were $25 and now i have seen them for sale as high as $80 each these days. so a really trying to breed them. but they donot breed as easily as other barbs i have kept. all i had to do to get other types of barbs to breed was ad alittle cold water simulating rain, but this does not seem to work for these type. however i am not sure if they have reached sexual maturity yet.

This tank also has 2 lemon spot plecos( breeding pair, so if interested i can take advanced orders as they breeed often its just a case of keepin the fry alive. $10 each. malibu got the first), numoruous pygmy corys, and 2 khuli loaches.

i decieded to add 6 praecox rainbows(dwarf neon), and 2 yoyo loaches, since that shop is moving and all fish were 50% of it cost me a grand total of $30 for the 8 fish.

i am peasantly suprised with how well the rainbows get along with the red flash sharks. (puntias dennisonii). they seem to not mind them at all and even school together when frightened.

Any one looking for a muti levell level swimmer for a med to large tank i would reccomend these in a flash.
