Albino Tiger Barbs
So I'm looking at stocking a 10 Gallon and I'm thinking about Albino Tiger Barbs, Petco says they can go in a 10 Gallon.
is that true? can they go in a 10 gallon? and If so, whats the school size I should put them in?
No tiger barbs can get very aggressive if not kept in large groups so they need much larger than 10 gallons.
Thank you, thats exactly why I never trust Petco and always check here! :p
Its always a good idea to check here before you buy fish alot of places have wrong info.
Those Petco workers are either told to make the sale or have no clue whatsoever..
At Petsmart I listened to a guy sell a betta fish and a tank that hold 2 cups of water. And he told the lady to change the water monthly. I was ready to kill that guy.
Yeah, don't look at the information at the pet stores. I work at Petsmart and our albino tiger barbs say 5 gallons. o.O Luckily I know better, and so does my manager (who wants to be an ichthyologist) and he specifically told me (as we were making fun of the tags) to not use those sizes. Always check a more reliable source before buying fish :)
