This is an impressive fish for a large show aquarium. They are easy to keep but will grow rapidly and reach a size of up to 14 inches (35 cm) in length. These barbs are often sold when still very small with little information advertised as to their ultimate size. They are usually a bit too big for most home aquariums and suggested for more experienced aquarists with space and equipment necessary to support them.

These very active fish will swim in all areas of the aquarium. To keep them happy, keep them in a school of 5 or more of their own kind. Though they are generally peaceful, they will eat smaller fish, so they are not always suitable for a community aquarium. They can be kept with cichlids. An aquarium best suited to this fish is large and roomy, with a fine gravel bottom and dense plantings along the edges. They like to burrow so be sure to use hardy plants.
