Diet - The Black Ruby Barb should be fed a varied diet of flakes, small pellets, frozen and live foods such as daphnia and brine shrimp.
Compatibility - Ruby barbs are schooling fish that should always be kept in groups of eight or more. They are less nippy than the tiger barb and are suitable for community aquariums with other peaceful fish. Tetras, other barbs, danios, catfish, and gouramis can generally be safely kept with ruby barbs.
Our juvenile fish will vary from the image shown as our images are to show the potential colours and markings when at a fully mature size.
