This listing is for one Tiger Barb, The Tiger Barb, a highly popular choice, is an easily manageable fish known for its energetic swimming in groups of six or more. Despite its appeal, it's not the best fit for a community tank due to its tendency to nip at fish with flowing fins and its mild aggressiveness.

While often chosen for community tanks, Tiger Barbs may become aggressive, especially when kept in small numbers. Keeping them in groups of six or more helps minimize internal quarrels. It's not advisable to house Tigers with docile, slow-moving, or long-finned fish like angels or bettas. For an attractive display, consider a species-specific tank with a mix of color variations or pair Tiger Barbs with fast-moving tankmates such as danios, platys, loaches, or catfish.

Tiger Barbs are versatile eaters but benefit from a varied diet to maintain a healthy immune system. Include quality flake food, live, and frozen options like brine shrimp, bloodworms, and beef heart in their diet.
