Care Guide: The Green Tiger Barb is a hardy and social fish species that thrives in a well-maintained aquarium. Follow this care guide to ensure the optimal health and happiness of your Green Tiger Barb:

Tank Size:

  • Provide a spacious aquarium with a minimum size of 20 gallons for a small school of Green Tiger Barbs. A larger tank is recommended for larger groups.

Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: Maintain a water temperature between 72-78°F (22-26°C).
  • pH: Keep the pH level within the range of 6.0-7.5.
  • Hardness: The water hardness can vary, but a range of 5-15 dGH is suitable.


  • Use a reliable aquarium filter to ensure clean and well-oxygenated water. Green Tiger Barbs appreciate a moderate to strong water flow.

Decor and Substrate:

  • Include plants, driftwood, and rocks in the aquarium to provide hiding spots and mimic their natural habitat.
  • Use a substrate of fine gravel or sand, as they like to sift through the substrate.


  • Green Tiger Barbs are omnivores and have a varied diet. Offer high-quality flake or pellet food as their staple.
  • Supplement their diet with live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia.

Schooling Behavior:

  • Green Tiger Barbs are social fish and thrive in schools of at least six individuals. Keep them in groups to reduce stress and encourage natural behavior.


  • Compatible with other peaceful community fish of similar size. Avoid keeping them with long-finned or slow-moving tankmates, as they may nip at fins.

Water Changes:

  • Perform regular water changes of about 20-30% weekly to maintain water quality.


  • If you wish to breed Green Tiger Barbs, provide a separate breeding tank with fine-leaved plants. The parents may eat their own eggs, so it’s advisable to remove them after spawning.

Note: The Green Tiger Barb is a lively and engaging fish that adds excitement to your community aquarium. Their active behavior and vibrant colors make them a delightful addition for both beginners and experienced aquarists.
