My brother and I each bought one of these fishes, and right from the start I observed my Chinese algae eater harassing its tank mates, while the individual that my brother bought never bothered anyone... Despite this, I have kept mine for about 6 months now with comets, guppies, and swordtails without any disappearances or casualties. From time to time though some of the fish will have small nips in their fins.

    Different types of fish have different personalities but each fish has it's own personality. Sounds like yours wants to make sure everyone knows he is the top dog.

I had 1 male and 1 female in a 55 gallon tank. Now I have 8 barbs. They will reproduce in more than a few inches of water.

    Zebra Danios, Leopard Danios, and Cherry Barbs, are all fish that get along with each other well! So, depending on what size aquarium you have, they would advisable tankmates. Additionally, make sure you place the Cherry Barbs, in a school of at least 5.

    Nothing as long as it's eating it's fine, if you want to feed it something else though cut a pea in half and drop both pieces into the tank depending on the size of your shark (silver shark).

I bought tinfoilbarb when it was quite small but in 6 months it has grown almost 4 inches long it was kept along with other fishes like goldfish, silver shark, catfish etc. suddenly it started tearing the eyes of other fishes like lionhead fish, shubunkin, veiltail etc. Why this aggressive behavior suddenly?

    Mine did the same. I have a normal tinfoil barb and the other one is the leuscitic version of it with black eyes and lesser scales. When they became around 7 inches and 1 and a half years old, they killed my juvenile oscar, a big shubunkin goldfish,and angelfishes. You should buy a new tank or sell it. It is most likely a male I guess.

Hey everyone, I just bought two of these from the local fish store. They are doing well in their new tank, I'm hoping they don't grow too quickly, my tank isn't that big, about ten litres or so. They're only about an inch long though. One of them has a demented rear fin, I hope he ends up ok...love this site.

    Don't worry my pet store (petland) said they grow very slow but might need a bigger tank as they age.

    ps - they should be full grown in about a year.

Is there a certain time in the year for which I should set up a zebra danio breeding tank and will I be able to see the eggs or fry?

    The answer to your qustion is you will be able to see the eggs and fry
    and acording to where they live it would probably be a good idea to mimic there natural enviorment so they feel more used to there surroundings.

    Here is a tip on zeabra danio breeding one is make sure its a spacious tank this is where they feel most safe.
