Are Long Finned Rosy Barbs a shoaling fish?
Yes, Long Fin Rosy Barbs are a shoaling barb, which will happily shoal with normal Rosy Barbs and other similar-sized barbs. Pair with six or more Rosy Barbs or barbs of a similar size to encourage active shoaling behaviour.
The Rosy Barb, Pethia conchonius, is a great addition to most community, freshwater aquariums. They are hardy, good for beginners and can survive well in temperate water. Rosy Barbs will happily swim around in a shoal.
