Barbus Vittatus

Barbus Vittatus

Barbus vittatus is one of the smaller barbs and rarely exceeds 2 inches long. It is quiet, peaceful, and inoffensive, and it is rather surprising he isn't much more well-liked.

The body is silver with a black dot on the base of the tail, and also the dorsal fin has a rusty-coloured base. All other fins are clear, and also the iris of the eye is silver.

The meaning of the word vittatus is striped but it is challenging to find any stripes on this fish.

Breeding is according to the standard description-these fish are fairly hardy and great breeders.
