Pethia is a genus of small freshwater fish in the family Cyprinidae native to South Asia, East Asia (only Pethia stoliczkana recorded) and Mainland Southeast Asia.
Pethia nigrofasciata, formerly Puntius nigrofasciatus, is a tropical cyprinid fish endemic to Sri Lanka. The fish has commercial importance in the aquarium hobby, and is successfully bred in captivity.
Plenty of room should be provided for this fish, with plenty of light and a shallow covering of floating plants and ample vegetation (half to two-thirds of the tank area).
This species is good for keeping with other barbs and similar fish. In captivity, the fish are omnivorous, with a healthy appetite.
The black ruby barb is an active swimmer that is best kept in schools of at least six. Source Wikipedia
