The cherry barb is a tropical freshwater fish belonging to the family Cyprinidae. It is endemic to Sri Lanka, and introduced populations have become established in Mexico and Colombia. The cherry barb was named Puntius titteya by Paules Edward Pieris Deraniyagala in 1929.


Cherry barbs are easy to care for because they’re peaceful, can tolerate water fluctuations, and aren’t susceptible to any particular diseases.
This species thrives in a tank setup that mimics its natural habitat. Provide plenty of plants and keep the water slightly acidic or neutral. The fish are omnivores and should be fed a combination of pellets, live or frozen foods, and vegetables.


Cherry barbs are omnivores in the wild, and eat small crustaceans, insects and algae. Because of their wide and varied diet, they will accept nearly any food in the home aquarium. They should be a high quality flake food daily, and their diet can be supplemented with live or frozen foods, and the occasional vegetable.

Shipping & Returns

Our Koi can now be delivered via Courier. Fish are delivered in an Oxygenated box, costing £25 per box.
For fish up to 6 inches we can fit 6 in a box, but the very large Koi would need a box of their own.
