Enteromius aboinensis is a peaceful schooling fish. You should keep a group of at least 10-12. The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background because they need hiding places. In the middle, you should leave a lot of free swimming space.
This species was first described in 1911 by Boulenger.
Synonym: Barbus aboinensis.
They are omnivorous. You should give them e great variety of live, frozen and dry food.
Breeding Enteromius aboinensis
Not much is known about breeding Enteromius aboinensis in an aquarium. They spawn between fine-leaved plants. As the parents eat their own eggs you must remove them after spawning.
