These are small fish with silver bodies, red or orange fins, and four vertical black stripes. They are also known for their fin-nipping tendencies, particularly enjoying nipping at the flowing fins of other fish, so it's not recommended to keep them with fish that have long, flowing fins like angelfish. It's best to keep them in a group of their own species.

Similar in shape to the Tiger Barb, the male Black Ruby Barb develops a deep red coloration when reaching breeding age. They have a gentle temperament, are easy to care for, and it's recommended to keep them in a group of five or more for the best results.
