Ruby Barb


The ruby barb originates in Sri Lanka, where it was once plentiful in the forest streams in the upper elevations of the Kelani and Niwala river basins. This native habitat is composed of dense vegetation and slow-moving waters, which are colder than many tropical areas. The water in these streams is soft and acidic, and the river beds are composed of sand or fine gravel.
