Cherry Barbs (Puntius titteya) are some of the most popular barbs available. They are generally more peaceful than other common barbs and stay fairly small in size. The natural Cherry Barb is reddish in color with a broken dark horizontal strip through the middle. Males tend to become more red and females more brown into maturity. These fish have several aquacultured varieties that are occasionally available to aquarists, including albino and longer-finned "veiltail" fish.

Barbs are popular aquarium fish from the Cyprinidae family, one of the largest in freshwater that also includes other popular fish like Danios and Tetras. Most of the barbs available to aquarists are from the genus Puntius although several others are also found, including Barbus, Garra, Barbonymus, Barilius and others.

The large Puntius genus ranges from tiny 1 fish to larger species that reach a foot or more in length. Most of those sold for aquariums reach around 3-5 inches in length. This group includes some of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish: Tiger Barbs, Cherry Barbs, Gold Barbs, Rosy Barbs and others. This genus found throughout Asia. These fish are schooling and should be kept in groups of at least five or more fish(more...)
