Adding a Denison Barb
At first I wasn't thrilled with them, but the more I see them the more I'm wanting to get one, their color is awesom. My question is would could I comfortably have one Denison Barb in my current tank, my sig has my current stock. Would just one in the tank be ok? I keep reading that Barbs need to be kept in groups of 5-6 ... but it seems more like as long as their with other of their Genus ... then it doesn't necessarily have to be 5 - 6 of their own species.
But please what's your for advice / opinion on adding one Denison Barb.
I AM looking to get 3x 5 Banded-Barbs (Puntius Pentazona, have to check with my LFS
on Monday) .. which would bring my stock to 24, the Denison would bring me to 25 which I figure is probably the limit for my tank.
The 5 Banded I want and the Denison is a would like to have.
