    I’m leaving ‘Barbus‘ behind for now as we don’t have images of any other species so this is the next genus for editing. The only species we currently cover is H. macrolepidota which we had in at the shop a couple of times at various sizes. Anybody kept it at home?

    just in the shop – voracious predator with smaller fish and a huge mouth.

    Yeah and it gets far too big to be worth keeping I reckon.

    the macro are a popular sport fish – google it and its mostly pics of huge ones caught on rod and line – not a species id reccomend for an aquarium – when i had them in the shop they came in at about 6 inch with no latin name so didnt discover what they were till they arrived

    Yeah , got five of the Dispar ! they’re nice fish well worth looking out for , plus they dont grow as big as the Macro’s , I think they max out at about 12 inches .

    Cheers Andy, how big are yours now? Do they hit food as hard as the macrolepidota?

    The H. dispar profile is here. Please let me know if I’ve missed anything important.
