 PD  would  require  water  conditions  and  env's  just  like  any  other  barb's.
 
 These  can  get  to  a  size  of  5-6".
 
 Planted  tank  would  be  more  ideal.

 Great  jumpers  for  the  first  few  days/  weeks!  Will  jump  out  at  the  first  oppurtunity  till  they  get  settled!  
 
 Mine  are  in  a  planted  set  up.  .Once  settled  they  are  quite  hardy  and  grows  pretty  fast  with  right  environment.  Mine  accepts  flakes,  pellets,  blood  and  tubefex  worms.  Not  fussy  eaters.

 I  dont  think  there  should  be  any  problem  because  the  plants  can  give  out  enough  oxygen  to  maintain  the  balance.  But,  remember  everything  in  excess  is  harmful  so  uncontrolled  Co2  can  also  be  sometimes  harmful.
 They  are  quite  hardy  fish  once  they  settle  down  and  will  be  one  of  the  most  agile  fish  in  the  tank!  They  will  settle  down  sooner  if  kept  in  a  group   Thumb Up

 Hi  Congo:
 
 Three  may  just  be  insufficient  to  be  called  a  group...add  at  least  two  more...
 
 They  are  sensitive  fishes  initially...
 Ensure  they  get  the  same  environment  (Water  Quality,  WCs,  Type  of  filtration,  water  parameters...)  in  the  Quarantine  tank  too...
 
 Don't  move  them  at  least  for  a  period  of  4  weeks...
 Bye,

 BTW,  they  are  now  being  bred  in  captivity,  which  is  good  news,  maybe  pressures  on  our  native  stocks  will  dwindle.

 Yes,  I  have  seen  and  heard  from  several  sources  that  they  have  been  bread  in  captivity,  but  so  far  seen  no  proof  that  it  is  trough  or  what  methods  that  have  been  used.  
 The  short  video  shot  only  shows  small  fishes.  They  actually  also  exist  in  the  wild.
 Anyone  knowing  what  they  do  and  how  they  do  it,  and  exactly  where?

 Hormones,  same  way  most  tinfoil  barbs  and  red  tailed  sharks  enter  the  hobby.  There  are  several  publications  devoted  to  inducing  reproduction  in  cyprinids  using  pituitary  extracts.
