The beautiful BARB TINFOIL GOLDEN is one of the most notable color morphs of the Tinfoil Barb Barbonymus schwanenfeldii. When kept in a school in a nice-sized aquarium, this attractive fish makes an awesome display. This truly striking fish has a golden or yellow body and a golden cast to its translucent fins without the reds and blacks of its parentage. Another common name it is known by is the Yellow Tinfoil Barb.
BARB TINFOIL GOLDEN 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 are suggested for more experienced aquarists with the space and equipment necessary to support them.
