AQUARIUM CARE: The Odessa barb has not been formally described as it has not been found in the wild. The original specimins were found in an aquarium store in Odessa, Ukraine. They are thought perhaps to be some form of crossbreed between other barb species, however they are not sterile, and breed true.

BREEDING: Breeding is relatively easy; the fish are substrate spawners, depositing their eggs on plants or spawning mops. If left in a well planted tank, yound can appear with the adults.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Vegetarian fish Some catfish have a largely vegetarian diet; feed them potato, lettuce, cucumber or blanched peas. Some of these will have to be weighted down, or held in place with a commercially available 'lettuce grip'. As with all fish, do not over feed; remove uneaten vegetable matter after a couple days
