Facts About the Five Banded Barb


The Five Banded Barb, also known as the Hexazon Barb, is a golden color with six black bars running vertically on each side of the body. It should not be confused with the Six Banded Barb (P. hexazona) which also has six bands. Its first band, however, is wider than the eyes, and the second band completely surrounds the body.
