This peaceful fish is an ideal inhabitant for any larger community aquarium, as it is non-aggressive and relatively easy to care for. They should be kept in groups, and the aquarium should have a tight fitting lid, as they have been known to jump. Furthermore, they are accustomed to fast-moving streams and require a high oxygen level in the aquarium water in order to thrive. To ensure a healthy and happy environment, a good filter and regular water changes are recommended. Additionally, the water temperature should be monitored to ensure it is within the appropriate range for this species.

In order to ensure optimal health, it is imperative that the Denison Barb be fed a balanced diet. This should include a variety of high-quality flake food, as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms. Furthermore, vegetables should also be included to provide the necessary nutrients. Ultimately, the diet should be tailored to the individual needs of the Denison Barb to ensure they are receiving the correct nutrition. Additionally, it is important to provide the correct quantity of food, as overfeeding can lead to health issues.

When choosing a purchase size, keep in mind that the medium will be approximately 3/4″ to 1-1/4″ in size, while the large will be approximately 1-1/4″ to 2″ in size.
