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.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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.
