Tiger Barb Stripes
 
I have a 20-30 tiger barb community when I got them the stripes are black after a few weeks it turns green slowly and now one adult tiger barb has pure green stripes and a eye like spot like a gourami fish which is turning green too.

The adults are having green stripes is it normal? are they healthy? or something?

During night I know that they fade stripes cause they sleep ;-) but the green was usual.

Yes it's normal for Tiger-barb stripes to look green... It's called the Tyndall effect.
