Care Guide: Red Rosy Barbs require specific care to thrive and display their full splendor. Follow these guidelines to provide the optimal conditions for their health and well-being:

Tank Setup: Provide a spacious aquarium with a minimum size of 20 gallons to accommodate a small group of Red Rosy Barbs. A larger tank is recommended for a larger group. Ensure the tank has plenty of swimming space and provide hiding spots with live plants, rocks, or driftwood.

Water Parameters: Red Rosy Barbs prefer slightly acidic to neutral water conditions. Aim for a pH range of 6.5-7.5. The water temperature should be kept between 72-79°F (22-26°C). Maintain good water quality through regular water changes and use a reliable filtration system.

Tank Mates: Red Rosy Barbs are generally peaceful and can be kept with a variety of freshwater fish species. However, avoid housing them with fin-nipping or aggressive fish. Good tank mates include peaceful community fish like tetras, rasboras, gouramis, or peaceful bottom-dwelling species.

Feeding: Red Rosy Barbs are omnivorous and have a hearty appetite. Offer a varied diet consisting of high-quality flakes or pellets as their staple food. Supplement their diet with live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, or daphnia to provide additional nutrients and mimic their natural feeding behaviors.

Behavior and Maintenance: Red Rosy Barbs are active swimmers and appreciate open swimming space. They enjoy shoaling, so keeping them in groups of at least six individuals is recommended. Regularly monitor their behavior and observe any signs of stress, disease, or aggression. Perform regular water changes to maintain excellent water quality.

Breeding: Red Rosy Barbs can breed in the aquarium under the right conditions. Provide suitable spawning sites such as fine-leaved plants or a spawning mop. The female will scatter adhesive eggs, and the parents should be removed after spawning to prevent egg predation.
