Yay!

I just added 6 cherry barbs and a DAF to my tank today

I am thinking to add 4 praecox in a couple weeks. Maybe another DAF if this one does ok.

Hopefully the barbs color up once they are acclimated.

Barbs are in the same family as Rasboras right?

Had to share, I lurve the little fishies!

Pretty nice....

The Cherry Barbs are in the Barb family, and don't think the rasboras are. Different families. The males will get to be a deep, deep red, and the females stay brownish.

Edit:
They are in the same family.

They are in a 40 Tall They are very active fish, don't school a whole lot, but they do make the tank look more active.

I'll take some photos this weekend and post them up.

The DAF seems to be doing ok too, i saw it nibbling on a shrimp pellet the other day before my Bolivian came and scared it away.
