A small, peaceful barb found in clear water streams in Northeastern India, the Drape Fin or High Fin Barb is named for the spectacular large dorsal fins of adult males, which are used in mating displays. A shoaling fish, they are found in large aggregations in the wild and should be kept in groups of at least 5 fish in the aquarium. The Drapefin Barb is somewhat timid and will do best in a planted aquarium or one with ample cover and subdued lighting. Hardy and active, a group makes for an impressive centerpiece for an aquascaped or planted nano aquarium.
