The Green Tiger Barb's scientific name is Puntius Tetrazona Green and they are part of the Cyprinidae family. The Green Tiger Barb's main body is deep fluorescent green with silver/gold blotches and orange accented fins. They are a very lively, playful fish that prefers to be in schools.
They prefer a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming. The Green Tiger Barb is a very active fish that may pester or even nip the fins of larger, slower moving fish.
The Green Tiger Barb needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.
Due to their schooling behavior, they bring so much color and activity to the middle of your tank. We recommended to purchase 6 plus fish therefore they can maintain their schooling behavior.
