The tiger barb was also used to make genetically modified fish sold as (fluorescent colored fish).

They would probably be alright with zebra danios. They are a tough fish, and are fast enough to stay well enough away from the tiger barbs. But you absolutely need to have a large aquarium for this to work. If they’re trapped together in a smaller aquarium like a 20 gallon, then you’re going to run into some problems.

Stocking this species in a community tank can be risky. The Tiger 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 tiger barbs in the tank. With 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.The Tiger Barb is an active fish that can reach a size of 1.5", so make sure you have enough space to keep the produced fish in before attempting to breed them. Since Tiger Barbs do not raise their offspring, one Tiger Barb batch is usually very large to make sure that at least a few of the fry survive. This means that you might have to cull the batch if you do not have a very large aquarium for the fry to grow in. If you refrain from culling and instead let them grow up in a crowded aquarium, the whole batch will suffer.The Tiger Barb will take regular tropical fish flakes but you should try to supplement their diet every once in a while with brine shrimp or krill.The many species within are quite commonly confused. is the Siamese tigerfish, or wide-bar datnoid. is the Indonesian tiger datnoid. is the silver datnoid.Spawning will usually begin very soon when the Tiger Barbs have been brought together again. During the courting period, the male will chase the females. When a female Tiger Barb starts releasing her eggs at the spawning site the male will follow her and leave a trail of sperm in the water. When the spawning is over you should remove the adult fish from the rearing aquarium, since Tiger Barbs are known to eat their own offspring. If you have covered the aquarium floor with marbles the eggs will be safer since the eggs can fall down between the marbles where the adult fish can’t reach them. If you keep the water temperature in the aquarium at 80 degrees Fahrenheit you can expect free swimming fry after approximately five days. The fry will usually cling to the sides of the aquarium.From the hobbyist perspective it is probably well thought of as one of those big tetra-type fish, like pacus. It is a beautiful fish with a color pattern suggestive of clown loaches and tiger barbs. There are six black bars on a red-orange body. Larger specimens have a faded red color on the body with bars that have a slightly greenish tinge and a red tail. When fully grown, the fish becomes totally gray.
