5-6cm Striped Barb.
Latin name: Desmopuntius johorensis.

Water Quality: Water temperature will need to be between 22.8°C - 25°C with a pH between 5.0 - 7.0.

Diet: Omnivorus so a mixed diet of flake, granules, micropellets, live or frozen meaty foods such as bloodworm, daphnia and mosquito larvae will be required for optimal health and colouration. 

Compatibility: Great choice for a community aquarium as they are generally pecefull, add lots of movement and will coexist well with comparably sized or bigger tankmates.

The Striped Barb is native to southern Thailand,  Peninsular Malaysia,  Singapore and the islands of Sumatra and Borneo in Indonesia where they inhabit peat swamps and black water such as streams and rivers .
