From the Latin word "Tigris" meaning Tiger and "Tetteras" meaning four, this truly describes these fish with their tigeresque colouration and vertical bars on each size.

Native to Sumatra and Borneo, the Tiger Barb is probably one of the best know fish in the hobby. Nearly every fish keeper has kept them at one time or another.

They are an extremely active species that have a reputation for fin nipping at other fish, however this can be avoided by keeping them in a school of no less than 6.
