Best looking tiger barb?

hey i was planning on getting tiger barbs, but I'm not sure if i should get all one color or a combination of regular, green and albino.
what do you guys think would look good?

It's really a personal choice but I've always liked the look of a big school of regular tigers.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

IMO, the green ones are very ugly. I do love the look of 10+ Regular Tigers, with 3-4 Albinos mixed in. But if you want one, do the regular.

I thing the regular ones are the most interesting, although i do like the greens as well.

Well the regular, green, and albino barbs will all school together so it's really up to you. If you can get them, there's also a variant that looks like an albino but still has the black and orange fins of a standard tiger barb.
