The male 5-Banded Barb is more colourful, thinner and slightly smaller than the female. This is actually a very good community fish to stock in numbers that is not aggressive and will do great with most other species of Tropicl Fish, super easy to care for, and why haven’t you added these to your cart yet? lol Have fun and enjoy!
