I have a male and female cherry barb. They are amiable to each other, but don't appear to be really interested in mating at this time. The male is a very bright red whereas the female looks more brownish-red. The male especially likes to eat off of the driftwood in the tank. They really like frozen brine shrimp.

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.

I have had a single cherry barb in a gallon tank for 4 years, and she has done amazingly well. She originally came from Walgreens in a tiny tank with a snail and plant. I did not know what kind of fish she was until recently. She has done so well in her upgraded tank, with amazon sword plants and a nice rock. I do not know the life expectancy of this fish, but I am sure she will live to old age if she has not already.
