WTB Wellington - Gold Barbs

Recommended Posts

I’m after any gold barbs in Wellington that aren’t babies. I find the babies too aggressive. I lost a barb due to bullying recently and I’m looking to replace her with 2 more if possible.

Well no it’s more that now the Bristlenose is gone I feel like I should up the numbers in the group, because we only have two. I’m quite new to fishkeeping and I’ve found they’re quite low maintenance.

Barbs are good and hardy, an easy care fish. The bigger the group (dependent on aquarium size of course) the more interesting their behaviour. They are more likely to show schooling behaviour in a large group.

Tracked some mature ones down at a fish store and rang in the morning to go pick them in the afternoon. I asked if they could reserve them for us and they said they couldn’t, but that they’d probably still be there. In the time between the call and us going in, they’d dosed the tank with copper and they were all messed up. 

If anyone knows anywhere else to get barbs in the Wellington area please let me know, they don’t have to be mature, I just desperately need some friends for my fish.
