Malabar Baril - Barilius bakeri
The Malabar Baril is related to the danios and minnows more commonly encountered in the aquarium trade. This minnow is found in India where it inhabits fast-moving streams and rivers. They need very well-oxygenated water with plenty of flow. They are schooling and should be kept in groups of at least five or more fish. Barils are not especially picky eaters and can be fed a variety of flakes, pellets and frozen foods.
