The black ruby barb (Puntius nigrofasciatus) or purplehead barb is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). Originating from Sri Lanka in forested streams from the Kelani basin to the Nilwala basin, they are found in streams on hills around 1000 ft (300 m) in elevation. The brightly colored population introduced to Mahaweli at Ginigathena, Sri Lanka are said to have diminished in number due to the aquarium export trade. (Wikipedia Oct 09)
