Please have a read of the information in the profile of these fish, esp the Tiger Barb. Profiles are second tab from left in the blue bar at the top. Everything I would say here is already said there.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
