He was really pale when I got him - you couldnt tell the difference between the boys and girls, they were all so pale. Now thogh they look so much better - it's good to see!

Must be all the surfing they do! :lol:

Very nice, Diana. I have only two cherry barbs left out of my original four. I won't be replacing them though - I think they're too small for the 165L tank but I might consider them for the 90L tank in the future. Wink

I have 10 cherry barbs in my 185 and they are beautiful little nasty beasties, especially the contrast of the males red and female brown, but even close up, the 'dul brown' hve amazing markings

Dont understate the Cherry barb 'newb fish' they may be but are still among my favourites and they get along with everything and are quite good for browsing green hair algae

I must say I like Checkered barbs too Wink

I'd say they look lovely in a large shoal Rich but I just don't have the room for them. Plus it's very hard to sex the juveniles which is how I ended up with four males...Rolling Eyes :lol:
