    Just got in 15 of these guys, and I must say I am absolutely happy that I did. They aren’t even fully colored up yet, but they are already attention grabbers.

    Heres a shot of 12 of the 15. . . .

    These shots give you an idea of sorts as to how they got their common name of ‘Mascara Barb’ . . .

    Thanks

    That group will look amazing when they get a bit larger – are you keeping them all?

    Yes, I was planning on keeping them all. I was even toying with the idea of getting a few more actually. I have a 300gal that I was thinking about converting over to just be a large group of these guys as the focal point with a few other fish.

    Do you have any suggestions for other species to put with them? I am wanting something larger if possible, but activity is good as well. I thought about other Puntius species, but was worried about interbreeding with the larger fish. Perhaps Barilius bakeri/canarensis?

    Some Denisoni Barbs would really complement the Assimilis !

    Or…. maybe some d. rohani, or….. haludaria fasciata?  :)
