1 Tiger Barb Loosing color...what wrong?
Well Its looks funny, Its bright and loosing color...I think Its the other tiger barb is chasing it around
What size is the tank? Your other tiger barb is losing its color because it is stressed out from the constant harassments. Add more hiding places and add more tiger barbs. For a group of 6 tiger barbs, a 20g should be in order. More than that, a 30g and over is a must. They prefer plenty of space and considering their size at 2.5 inches, they are also liable to harass smaller tankmates so be particularly selective in choosing their tankmates.
well I have 2 (mistake I guess)
and I have A closed in cave (only one Entry)
And Two hidding places that are rather large
And this is a 60 gallon tank
well, theres a puffer, but hes peaceful, and been there awhile
The fish is geting its color back, I siphoned the tank a bit and its black lines are returning, But i might think of getting a couple more tiger barbs
And yes im 100% thats the fish :)
Tiger barbs are quite nippy and can harass each other and other fish quite a bit. I'd recommend adding more decorations and keeping at least 6 of them.
Also, the puffer is not a peaceful fish. While you may not see aggression yet, believe me, it's coming. Also, they should be kept in brackish water.
