Rosy Barbs (Puntius conchonius) are hardy fish, and can be kept successfully by beginners. Rosy Barbs are usually a gold metallic color, with males having metallic orange to red flanks. They sport a black spot near the base of the tail, and the fins are generally reddish. Males are generally more colorful than females but the bright colors will not usually develop without the presence of females.

There are many aquacultured variations to the "natural" Rosy Barb. The Red Glass Rosy Barbs are a slightly muted color variant of the common Rosy Barb. The color is pale and almost translucent.
