Sickle Fin Barb 4-5"

You’re going to need a big aquarium for these big sickle-fin barbs! Active, sociable swimmers that can reach over a foot long, Puntioplites Falcifer are most similar to tinfoil barbs in size and ecology. In the wild, sickle-fin barbs roam the Mekong Basin in voracious schools that graze on river plants and hunt small invertebrates. In captivity, this means that no soft-leaved plant is safe from this largely herbivorous species!

We recommend that you keep a school of at least three in a large, spacious tank (6-foot minimum), and supplement their diet with vegetables such as peas or blanched zucchini.
