Watch Fighting Barbs

I was looking at the videos I took several months ago in my aquariums and I found some really funny and interesting life of a fish. This video is a fight between Tiger Barb and Green Barb. Usually, they get along but sometimes, I think when they are bored, they try to do things fun, well, just like fight :p

One thing that’s interesting and very unlike to humans is that when they fight, there are no spectators. The other fishes in the aquarium just mid their own business (like the molly in the video, tell me what’s her business? :p). Anyways, enough of blah..blah..blah.. watch it 🙂

My Tiger Barb and Green Barb

In my early stage of keeping fish aquariums, one of the fishes that I like was Barbs. They have different varieties and personalities. They are very active and actually aggressive specially to smaller, weaker fish. They tend to fight always even with their own variety.

Though they are aggressive, you can’t resist loving them. If fed properly, their colors become so bright and defined. It is a must to have a good quality of water and right level of pH so keep them healthy. They are not choosy when it comes to food but they eat happily with Tetra Bits.

Barbs fish are hardy fish; they seldom get sick nor get affected by parasites. In my experience, I they tend to become  quiet if the water becomes dirty, so just changing the water will make them cheerful again. My barbs are with other community fish like mollies, tetras, silver dollar, and  guppies.
