MAJOR TAIL NIPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they bite tails of other fish (especially angels betas and gouramis!!! DO NOT MIX W/ THESE FISH) its a good idea 2 either put them in a tank by them self, or w/ other barbs. guppies dont mix well w/ them either. (FROM EXPERIENCE!!!) thnx!!!

My Fiance and myself started a warm water tank and we had in there guppies, tiger barbs, mollies and angel fish and a prco. We could not understand why the angels, molies, preco and gappie just all of a sudden passed. well no I know that it’s because of these two little things. they are so sweet though very active and like to chase one anohther in the tank. No I thing we must replace them or we will have no more fish in our tank. Desided to look up the fish we want and see if they can all swim together.

I have lots of experience with Tiger Barbs (regular, green and albino). In my experience they have done best in odd numbered groups (at least 3 or more). These fish are schooling and semi-aggressive so they should really only be kept with other semi-aggressive fish! I think they are great to watch and they grow quickly into a lovely school.
