How old are your Tiger Barbs? They can get up to 3 inches long and are very active fish. They need the space to swim comfortably. They might stay alive for some time in a 15 gallon but I definitely would not recommend they stay in there. Fish are housed in inappropriate size tanks all the time but it certainly isn't the ideal. I have mine in a 60 gallon and they swim from one side to the other in a second. They flash around the tank like kids on a candy high.

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]
