Sooo... don't mean to rain on anyone's parade here but... while I agree with Romad that the green tiger barbs look very cool... I believe that they are referred to as "painted fish"... fish injected with dyes to make them look more attractive to the fishkeeper. Marketing gig of some kind. I personally would have gotten green tiger barbs myself if I had not seen that post somewhere before I went to buy them. Now I simply refuse to even if I haven't verified that it is true.

I had never heard that green tiger barbs were "painted" before. According to this article green varieties are simply a breed that's been hybridized over time to have that high pigment concentration that results in the Tyndall effect. I'm perfectly fine with hybrids and all that so long as it doesn't adversely affect the health of the fish and in this case I can't see any problems.

That said, I do like the green tiger barbs, but I have three words for the OP:

Black ruby barbs.

Absolutely gorgeous fish. They look very similar to tiger barbs but in my experience are a lot less nippy. Plus, when those males darken up, they're just stunning.
