Tiger barbs pissed me off when they nipped my Angels so I went Cherry, but I still like the look of Tigers.

I always forget about those. Those are by far the best IMO.

No problem with tiger barbs. I just don't mix them with anything sporting long trailing fins. My male arulius barbs have long dorsal fins that are not nipped yet but I doubt the tigers can as the tigers are always busy pecking each other.

Green!

I enjoy the aggressiveness and green has a cooler color to them

Edit: Keeping agressive barbs is a very simple thing. Keep them in large groups, no long fins in the tank, feed them well.
