The tiger barb or Sumatra barb (Puntigrus tetrazona) is a native to the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo – but they can be found in many other parts of Asia today.
Tiger barbs have been found in clear or turbid shallow waters of moderately flowing streams and swamp lakes and backwaters.
They thrive in large shoals – and in the community tank they have a reputation of being bad boys. They can be fin nippers if you keep them with angel fish or gouramis.
Anyway, a shoal of tiger barbs is a joy to watch. These fish are always busy, active and curious – investigating their environment… and going completely into feeding frenzy at dinner time.
They like soft to medium hard slightly acid water, but they are very adaptable.
Lean back, take a moment of chill… and watch my tiger barbs in this 20 gallon planted tank.
