 Here  are  a  few  pics  of  the  Black  Ruby  Barbs  [  Puntius  nigrofasciatus  ]I  got  a  few  days  ago.
 The  Alpha  and  Beta  males  being  the  most  colorful  never  make  a  appearance  to  the  front  of  the  tank.
 These  are  three  of  the  8  fish  who  come  out  once  in  a  while.

 Very  beautiful.  Had  just  read  about  them  in  'Ornamental  Fishes  of  Western  Ghats  of  India'.  Not  sure  why  its  in  the  book  as  they  are  endemic  to  Sri  Lanka.
 
 And  Madan  sir,  are  these  hard  to  get  here?

 Deepak  I  am  keeping  these  fish  after  8  long  years,  I  got  bland  juveniles  then,  probably  in  bred  for  a  long  time.  I  have  not  seen  it  in  Bangalore  fish  shops  after  2001,  until  now.
 
 They  are  endemic  to  Sri  Lanka.

 They  are  not  only  Endemic  to  Sri  Lanka,  like  Cherry  barb  Puntius  titteya  are  on  the  verge  of  being  endangered  too,  due  to  indiscriminate  collection  for  ornamental  purposes

 I  second,  third  and  fourth  that.   Very Happy  
 
 @Hamza,  they  keep  busy  within  the  group.  Hence  won't  bother  other  fish  like  the  Tiger  Barbs  do.

 Madan,  dont  they  touch  your  moss?  
 
 I  generally  steer  clear  of  fine  leaved  plants  and  mosses  when  I  want  to  keep  barbs.
 
 But  I  guess  the  melons  and  rubies  may  be  slightly  more  gentle  on  plants.
 
 Madan,  let  us  know!

 Puntius  nigrofasciatus  
 are  very  nice  fishes.  I  have  them  in  my  planted  tank  with  Discus,  Rummy  nose  and  cardinals.
 
 The  males  are  always  seen  engaging  in  a  dual  like  lock  and  one  can  see  them  rolling  and  dog  fighting  all  over  the  tank  without  actually  touching  each  other.
 
 Amazing   fishes.  The  males  look  dark  rosy  color  almost  black  but  for  the  face.  
 
 
 Very  entertaining.  My  male  died  after  3  yrs  and  I  have  only  females  now.  But  when  He  was  alive  after  the  death  of  another  male  he  was  the  only  male  left.   He  used  to  Get  into  this  dual  like  performance  with  my  golden  algae  eater  (a  peaceful  chap).  
 
 He  used  to  irritate  him  all  day  without  touching  him  but  by  hovering  over  him  fully  colored  up  and  with  aggressive  body  movement.  The  algae  eater  used  to  chase  him  when  he  could  not  tolerate  him  any  more  ,  the  whole  length  of  the  tank  and  then  rest  on  a  rock  or  leaf.  Then  in  few  minutes  this  would  start  all  over  again.  Later  he  picked  on  a  Bosemanni  rainbow  female.  This  made  me  suspect  if  the  female  was  actually  a  male.
 
 Well  highly  recommended.  I  am  hunting  for  some  myself.  I  am  missing  the  dual.
