Beautiful little barb
I call them Odessa barbs. They're schoolers and like a lot of live plants. They can be a bit nippy, so keep an eye on tankmate's fins. The fish are easy to care for. The color is quite beautiful. Great for beginners. I would not keep them in a cramped, over-stocked aquarium. They like room to swim! .

Looks bad, but fish recover
Stress brings on this viral disease. The fish will recover if most cases. But if you have a dead fish, for any reason, remove it immediately. If fish eat a dead fish, the virus may be transmitted. The rotting fish will cause a stressful spike in ammonia and nitrite. Remove dead fish right away!!!.
