Introducing Golden Barb Koi derived from the half-banded barb

The Golden Barb goes by a number of nicknames including Gold Barb, and Half-striped Barb. But there is a new variety of Barb available; it’s called Golden Barb Koi. The Golden barb is an artificial sport that is said to have derived from the half-banded barb (Barbus semifasciolatus). However, nobody can say this for sure. The fish appeared in the 1960s in the aquarium trade and is said to have been bred by an aquarist named Thomas Schubert of Camden, New Jersey, US. That is the reason why the fish is often referred to as "Barbus (or Puntius, both is wrong) schuberti".
 
The Golden barb is an absolutely peaceful fish that never disappeared again and is always available in pet shops all over the world. In more recent times other sports have been developed, among them animals that have two or three colors on the body. These fish are called "Koi Golden barb" in the trade. We currently have very nice specimens of that sport in stock which we received from a breeder.
 
Regarding keeping this fish it is not necessary to make many words: it thrives very well both at room temperature and at 28°C and hardness and pH are of no meaning for the fish. As long as the water is drinkable for humans, the Golden barb will like it. And the species feeds virtually on any type of food that is produced for ornamental fish. Puntius semifasciolatus are listed on the IUCN Red List of Endangered species but marked as least concern. This species is impacted by pollution and dams.
For our customers: the fish have code 371343 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
