Odessa barbs seems like an awesome fish. Does anyone keep them or even know where to find them?

The males have awesome colors. They can be a little aggressive. I have a friend who breeds a variety of barbs. I'll ask him what he is currently working with. Also, go to Azalea and ask them to keep an eye out for them when their wholeseller's stock lists become available. That's assuming they don't have them in stock already of course.

The adult males have great color. One of my favorite barbs. I use to get these at Petsmart all the time.

I ma not sure why, but Pet Smart stopped carrying them, and when I asked why, I was told it was a decision made at coporate. *sigh*
