Environment Specifications
A large peaceful shoaling fish that should be kept in groups of at least 4 or 5. Do not keep with very small fish nor with long-finned slow-moving fish such as Angelfish as this Barb may nip and will eat any fish that can fit in its mouth.
In the wild, B altus is a river dwelling species. Most of the environment is composed of rocks and pebbles. It does best in a large aquarium with plenty of filtration and water movement. Low oxygen levels will kill this fish before any other fish have a problem. It often eats live plants and certain types of algae. These fish are not too picky as to PH (they are very hardy) but show better colour and have more success with breeding in soft, slightly acidic to neutral water. Avoid sharp décor, it is sometimes startled and may injure itself. It does not hide as it feels that fleeing is a better defence.

Diet/Feeding Regime In the wild, this Barb often invades flooded rice patties and eats the crop. It appreciates vegetable matter but is reluctant to eat floating vegetables. These fish like peas, zucchini and cooked rice. It will eat any fish or invertebrate small enough to fit in it's mouth. It greedily accepts all aquarium foods. As with most Cyprinids, the Red-tail will continue to eat until there is no food left; it does not register being "full." An occasional treat of live prey could be provided such as brine shrimp, but some younger specimens are too timid to accept these foods before their tank-mates have eaten the last one. It will eat as long as there is food. 2-3 meals per day is sufficient; but it is a large hungry fish that needs plenty of food to thrive.
