Algerian Barb (Barbus Setivimensis)

The body colour of Algerian barb is silvery, lightening to white on the belly, and darkening to a beautiful coppery brown or olive brown along the back. It has two pairs of barbels. It is not a very striking fish, and has one large disadvantage - it'll grow to about 12 inches long.

Small is recognized about its breeding habits but you could assume initially that they breed like the majority of other barbs.
