Scientific name: Barbonymus schwanenfeldii Common name: Tinfoil barb Max. size: 35.0 cm / 14 inches pH range: 6.5 7.0 dH range: 10 Temperature range: 22 25C / 72 77F The Tinfoil barb grows really large, up to 35 centimetres (14 inches) and is therefore not suitable for small aquariums. Inexperienced aquarists sometimes purchase young Tinfoil barbs without first researching how big this fish can grow and that you should keep at least 5 specimens together. The Tinfoil barb is also utilized as food fish in its native region and grown in aquacultures. Tinfoil barb habitat and range: The Tinfoil barb is a benthopelagic and potamodromous species native to Brunei Darsm, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. It lives in large rivers as well as in streams, ditches and manmade canals. Tinfoil barbs will also enter flooded fields. Tinfoil barb description: As mentioned above, the Tinfoil barbs can easily outgrow small aquariums since they can reach a length of 35 centimetres (14 inches). Large Tinfoil barbs display a silvery or golden yellow colouration with red fins. You can distinguish the Tinfoil barb from other members of its genus by looking at the dorsal fin. The Tinfoil barb features an orange or blood-red dorsal fin decorated with a black blotch at the tip. The pectoral, pelvic and anal fins are also red and have white margins. Along each lobe, you can see a black submarginal stripe. There are 8 scale rows located between the dorsal-fin origin and the lateral line.
