Welcome to the forum!!! I have Tiger Barbs. 8 of them to be exact. They are...playful little fish, very active kind of naughty but really fun to watch. What size tank do you have them in?

Welcome to TFK, wufish. Tiger Barbs are so nice looking but much too nippy for my community tanks. I've read numerous times that a 55gl should be the minimum size tank for adult Tigers. If I was to ever keep them I'd go 55 for them.

Welcome to the forum. Inga is right...playful, active and a little naughty. They need the right tankmates and like lots of swimming room. I have mine in a 55 with a Green Texas, a female Salvini, BN pleco and a Raphael cat and everyone behaves themselves. The Tigers mostly squabble among themselves but never do any damage to eachother. Check out the 2nd video under my cichlid tank (under the aquariums tab by my avatar) and you'll see my group.

hello and welcome.
Tigers can indeed be total fun.
give them planted with swimming space(lots of it) and you'll have a happy gang.

Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

Previous comments on Tiger Barb are correct, you might want to check out our profile on this fish for details. We have many fish in the profiles, with info on compatibility, tank sizes, water parameters, this and that. Click on the shaded name of the fish in posts to see that fish's profile, or click the second tabs from the left in the blue bar across the top to go to the profiles.

Byron.
