Cherry Barb

Introducing the Cherry Barb (Puntius titteya): A Stunning Addition to Your Aquarium

Enhance your aquatic paradise with the mesmerizing beauty of the Cherry Barb. This smaller-sized bard is an ideal choice for tanks of 20 gallons and larger, bringing vibrant colors and captivating behavior to your underwater world.

With its striking red coloration, the male Cherry Barb steals the show, but even the females showcase hints of red, setting them apart from other species where females often lack color. Their exquisite hues add a touch of elegance to any aquarium, creating a visual spectacle that will captivate both beginners and seasoned aquarists alike.

To ensure the utmost comfort and security for your Cherry Barbs, we highly recommend providing them with ample hiding places and creating a habitat that allows them to feel at ease. By mimicking their natural environment and offering suitable hiding spots, you'll witness their true beauty as they confidently explore their surroundings.

For harmonious coexistence, it is essential to keep Cherry Barbs with fish of mild temperament. This ensures that they do not retreat or hide, allowing you to fully appreciate their presence. By choosing tankmates that share a similar disposition, you create a serene and balanced aquatic community.

Did you know? Our Live Arrival Guarantee gives you peace of mind when selecting our UPS (1 Day) shipping option for all fish shipments. We stand by the quality and well-being of our Cherry Barbs, ensuring they arrive in pristine condition to join your aquatic family. Please note that choosing alternative shipping options may void this guarantee.

Reaching a maximum size of approximately 2 inches, these charming Cherry Barbs thrive in groups. We recommend keeping them in groups of at least 5, as they are social creatures that exhibit their most natural and engaging behaviors when surrounded by their peers. For optimal happiness and vibrant displays of color, consider adding even more Cherry Barbs to your tank.

At our facility, we prioritize the health and nourishment of our Cherry Barbs. Our carefully selected feeding regimen consists of a nutritious blend of frozen foods, including daphnia, baby brine, cyclops, and Bloodworms. This balanced diet ensures their overall well-being and enhances their vivid colors, making them the focal point of your aquarium.

They all came in alive and in great health, I received 2 shipments that day and yours was great and the other shipment had 2 of the 3 bags had holes in, looks like I will be buying more fish from you instead of the other company. Thanks

Healthy Cherry Barbs!

My order of Cherry Barbs arrived in great condition! Despite the summer temperatures, the cool pack and excellent insulated packaging kept them nice and cool (just be sure you are available to take them inside when they arrive!).
The fish were in great health and adapted very quickly to my tanks. They are already coloring up and even trying to lay eggs!
Great job Flip Aquatics!
