I think it may be fine to mix them, but I'm not 100% sure. I only had the regular ones. Someone else should know, though.

Yes, tiger & green barbs can be kept together and they will school together.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

green and tiger barbs will school

Green and tiger will not school with cherry or gold

Shark does not like gold or cherry.

Tiger and green barbs dont care about gold and cherry.

My barbs headstand, pretty funny to see. Especially when one sneaks up on another one thats headstanding.

Hope that helps. I have all of them.

ive continued to read up on albinos with green tigers and most everyone says they school together with no problems? i think i might get some albinos in the future and if they dont school ill just get a couple more of em

well the thing i noticed is that the agressive barbs will school just fine. The shark doesnt seem to care about the agressive barbs and they work together just fine.

Its the smaller non agressive barbs that are long slender fish, that dont seem to work out very well.
