The snakeskin barb is one of the more desirable barbs of the puntius family with its unique "snakeskin" body markings. These are schooling fish and should be kept in a group of at least four to keep their stress low. Good filtration for all puntius barbs is a requirement. Otherwise the fish is hardy, eats flake and small pellet food, and is a good asset to any community fish tank.
