What fish are ideal tank mates for Golden Barbs?

The gold barb is an active, mildly aggressive schooling species that spends most of its time in the mid-level and bottom of the water. Its typical lifespan in captivity is around four to six years. This golden barb fish is often used in community tanks by fish keeping hobbyists.

Several species can coexist as tank mates to the golden barb. In general, Golden Barbs are very peaceful and do well in community tanks as long as you avoid long-finned fish to prevent fin-nipping behaviour.

Golden Barbs will happily live with cherry barbs, danios, dwarf gourami, neon and ember tetra, swordtails and rope fish to name but a few.
