The Tinfoil Barb

23 Feb

So the answer to “Contest Three: A Fishy Problem” was The Tinfoil Barb.

They are active and pretty and eat anything, BUT they get huge! A 55 gallon tank is probably the smallest you should ever have them in, and the filtration should be strong.

I haven’t found any pics of when my Tinfoils were at their largest so I will break my own rule and show you a pic from the Internet of big Tinfoils.

Wrapping these in Tinfoil would be redundant.

Also, here is a thread on The Planted Tank site that shows many common aquarium fish that get too big for most hobbyists.
