I HAVE TWO RED TAIL TINFOIL BARBS THAT ARE ALMOST 21 YEARS OLD, YES 21 YEARS. THEY STARTED OUT AS SIX, BUT THERE ARE ONLY TWO LEFT AND ARE ABOUT 10" LONG. I RECENTLY PURCHASED A 85 GALLON TANK AND ASSUME THEY WILL GET BIGGER. I FEED THEM FLAKE FOOD AND THEY SEEM TO BE HAPPY WITH THAT. I HAD INHERITED THEM FROM MY MOTHER WHO GOT TIRED OF TENDING TO THEM AND THAT WAS ALL SHE EVER FED THEM, SO I DIDN'T WANT TO CHANGE THEIR ROUTINE AND HAVE BEEN DOING GREAT... WHAT A GREAT FISH!

I have had chinese algae eaters in my tank, but when they grow up become too aggressive. Will jump onto other fish and bite them. Stopped keeping them a long time ago.

I love Tiger barbs, and currently have 16 in a planted 55 gallon tank along with my Rainbow shark. They are so much fun to watch and at that number when they school up together it's really cool looking because it does not just look like they are swiming close to each other but like they are acting as one.

I had 6 tiger barbs, now I have 4, and 2 male bettas. All of them get along great. It is cool to sit down and watch them play. It is fun to watch them eat the flake food I put in for them.

I have had mine for bout a week now and i love it. I highly recommend this fish. It wont bug other fish and even mean(red dot) fish stay away from it. When you buy more then one they stick close by.

tinfoil barbs are most definitely the best aquarium kept fish. i have a shoal of ten, the largest being a massive 15 inches, with 4 gold tinfoils and 2 huge silver dollars and some large plecs in my 12 foot tank. the best food to feed them is koi carp pond pellets, it is are really cheap and really brings brings out the colour, also bloodworms and liver.

Our 13" Tin Foil Barb just passed away last night. We got it when it was about 2" long more than 10 years ago. I didn't realize they could live so long. We kept it in a 135 gallon fish tank with four other Tin Foils and two Plecasemas. All but one of the original Tin Foils are gone. The last one is about 10" long. The Plecostomus are about 12" long.

I had two and one jumped. I found him two weeks later stiff as board inside my piggy bank. Great fish but keep the tank covered.

I put a few of these in my pond, now there are hundreds. The pond freezes in winter and these guys come back to life when it thaws.
