Description

The Red Line Torpedo Barb or Denison Barb (Barbus denisonii) is a tropical fish belonging to the barb group in the minnow family. Originating in fast-flowing streams and rivers of India, this fish is a relatively new addition to the fish keeping hobby. They are characterized by a torpedo shaped body with silver scales, a red line running from their head, through the eye, back towards the middle of the body, and below the red line, a black line that runs the length of the fish to the tail. The fish will grow to a maximum length of 6 inches (15.0 centimeters).

The Red Line Torpedo Barb is a schooling fish that is usually kept in groups. They tend to be peaceful but some have been known to be slightly aggressive. Red Line Torpedo Barbs natively live in a subtropical climate and are adaptable fish that prefer water with a 6.8-7.8 pH, a water hardness of 5-25 dGH, and a temperature range of 60-77 F (15-25 C).

Unlike some of the other barbs, this is a peaceful fish that is a welcome addition to any larger community aquarium. They should be kept in groups in an aquarium with a tight fitting lid, as they have a tendency to jump. In nature, they are found in fast moving streams and appreciate a high oxygen level in aquarium water. The Denison Barb needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods.
