They are a hybrid of two species, one of which may be a tiger barb, but doesn't have to be.

Tiger barbs "naturally" occurring color patterns are normal, albino and green. The latter two are selectively bred to achieve those colors. Any other kind of tiger barb is a result of hybridization. The blue tiger barbs are likely a cross between green tiger barbs and black ruby barbs.
