Tiger Barb has black bands that run vertically on an orange/gold body. There are also a few different varieties such as the Albino and the Green. Stocking this species in a community tank can be risky. This barb is a very active tropical fish that has a reputation for nipping the fins of its tank mates. This fin nipping behavior is most often attributed to not having enough tigers in the tank. With all of that being stated, they do best when kept in schools of 6 or more. Given their somewhat aggressive nature, it might be a good idea to think twice before adding this barb (or school of them) to a community tank.
