Barbs can be a very robust and hardy fish, often used as an introductory fish to new mature aquariums.  Easy to care for and will readily accept most foods, care must be taken however as they can nip fins and are ideally kept in large groups to quell any aggression.
Growth Size 7cm


Originating from central and southern Sumatra river systems.
Ideally kept in a good shoal of 8 or more.
Ideally slightly acidic water conditions are provided between 6.5pH - 7pH however they will happily live in conditions ranging up to pH of 7.5 or higher. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C.
Will happily accept a wide variety of foods including Flake, Frozen and Live.
Tiger barbs can be very boisterous and care must be taken with species that have long trailing fins or a timid nature.  They tend to be less aggressive when kept in larger shoals or given plenty of room.
When mature it is not uncommon to see egg scattering taking place among fine leaved plants.  However no after care is provided and it is unusual for fry or eggs to survive unless given a seperate environment to grow in.  Males tend to be slimmer with much more vivid colours presented.
