 Just  setup  my  30x12x12  tank  planted  with  a  few  crypts,  hopefully  you  will  see  a  pic  here  -
 
 
 
 I  want  to  have  a  shoal  of  barbs,  I  am  only  able  to  get  the  regular  Rosy/Tiger/Cherry/Golden/Tinfoil  Barbs  but  want  some  other  ones  that  are  hardy  and  can  breed.
 
 Melon  /  Arulius  barbs  or  something  like  them  will  be  the  best,  can  someone  help  me  source  3-4  pairs  of  these  for  me?  or  suggest  alternatives  that  they  can  get?
 
 Regards
 Pradeep

 I  guess  thats  what  i  will  do  if  i  dont  get  any  firm  leads.  Somehow  get  the  feeling  that  native  indian  barbs  arent  very  popular  with  hobbyists  in  India....  wonder  why?

 There  are  more  than  a  few  members  on  this  forum  who  keep  native  barbs...  the  reason  for  their  general  unpopularity  is  the  "ghar  ki  murgi,  daal  barabar"  principle...  Wink

 Someone  is  willing  to  send  me  -  at  a  reasonable  cost  any  of  the  following  -  
 Puntius  gelius  /  P.  phutino  /  P.  ticto  /  P.  sophore  /    P.  terio  /  P.deccanensis  &  P.  cauveriensis
 
 Where  can  i  see  pics  of  them,  and  also  find  out  their  max.sixe.
 
 pl.  help.  If  any  of  the  chennai  folks  are  interested  in  buying  a  few,  then  let  me  know  your  numbers  and  we  can  order  them  together.

 PC,  google  images  will  turn  up  pics  of  the  first  five  species  on  your  list.  gelius  will  max  out  at  just  over  an  inch  and  is  best  kept  in  the  species  tank.  The  next  four  all  look  fairly  similar  and  will  grow  to  about  2",  phutunio  being  a  bit  smaller...  The  last  two,  I  have  never  seen.
