No tiger barbs can get very aggressive if not kept in large groups so they need much larger than 10 gallons.

10 gallons?

Those Petco workers are either told to make the sale or have no clue whatsoever..

At Petsmart I listened to a guy sell a betta fish and a tank that hold 2 cups of water. And he told the lady to change the water monthly. I was ready to kill that guy.

Yeah, don't look at the information at the pet stores. I work at Petsmart and our albino tiger barbs say 5 gallons. o.O Luckily I know better, and so does my manager (who wants to be an ichthyologist) and he specifically told me (as we were making fun of the tags) to not use those sizes. Always check a more reliable source before buying fish :)
