Black spot inside fish??
I recently added 6 Tiger barb to my tank (10g) to go with 1 tiger barb, that I had in the tank for a month now. In doing so I noticed that, within an hour, the new fish look as if something inside of them turned black in one spot. The old fish doesn't have it; he was being very aggressive with them at first, in which i took him out and added him in a few hours later. Is their something i can get for them or are they sick? Also, it has been about a week and the other fish seems to have settled but does chase the new fish around. I have checked their fins and they are fine. Will he eventually stop this?...Please help :)

Tiger barbs are known for their "nippiness". Although they are not territorial in nature, they do establish a heirarchy, pecking order if you will. Not a whole4 lot you can do except maybe get a bigger tank. You can tolerate their behavior or exchange your fish for other less aggressive fish.

i agree. you should get new fish or a bigger tank.

Well the mean tiger seems to have settled a little, but does still chase. I'll try a bigger tank, but does anyone know what these black spots inside of them could be?...it almost seems as if something inside of them exploded but black :?
If anyone knows anything about this please let me know :)

We can't imagine that spot. Post a pic, please! My tigers have spots but they look naturally fine.

For what it's worth, a friend just bought some tiger barbs and a few of them have a single black spot in between their middle stripes. They are all fine and healthy, so it might just be a natural mark.

my tiger barbs have same spot(s). they seem to be doing well but i read somewhere about parasite larva from snails. this may be true bc i noticed the spots just after adding a new plant to the tank... a plant that the tiger barbs love and sleep around.
