Email Us With our purchase of CORAL Magazine, the entire team at Aquatic Media Press is working overtime! I’m so very thankful for everyone’s support of CORAL and AMAZONAS (if you’re not a subscriber, please do subscribe!). I hope to reopen retail in 2024.

Sahyadria denisonii “Roseline Shark” aka. Denison Barb (captive-bred)


I remember first seeing the “Roseline Shark” (Denison Barb)…and the commensurate retail price tag at the time, and realizing that here was a freshwater fish on par with some of the higher end saltwater Anthias!  Thankfully they’re not nearly as expensive as they once were.

These are peaceful, active schoolers that reach about 4 to 4.5″ in size and arguably deserve an aquarium of at least 50 or so gallons upon maturity. Over-collection for the aquarium trade and habitat degradation have caused this species to be listed on the IUCN Redlist as Endangered; it’s my opinion that there is justification for purchasing this species as wild-caught, the general exception being for broodstock purposes.

“Tiny” is the smallest I’ve seen these to date; around 1-1.25″, showing juvenile coloration. Small juveniles offered here do not yet show full adult coloration, and are currently around 1.5-2″. Medium individuals are generally around 3″ and show more color.  Large fish are adults, at 4″ or larger. Price fluctuates with availability during the year; pricing simply reflects the investment in the fish at any given moment.
