Odessa Barbs

The hardy Odessa barb is a species of cyprinid fish known from Central Myanmar where it is known to occur in an artificial pond above the Anisakan Falls and also from the lower Chindwin River.

This fish is also known as the fish species "Odessa barb" because it was said to have first appeared in pet enthusiast’s circles in Odessa, Ukraine in the early 1970s.

Odessa barbs will thrive in planted tanks.
