Puntius tetrazona common name Tiger Barb.

They can grow up to 7-8 cm / 3 inches. They live in water parameters of PH range 6.0-7.5, and temperatures of 23-26 Celsius / 74-79 °F.

The tiger barb is a  semi aggressive fish, they can be very nippy. We recommend not to mix them with fish that have flowing fins, like guppies and fighters. They are best mixed with other nippy fish. As the tiger barb is a playful fish, they are best kept in small or larger groups.

The tiger barb is a very greedy fish and will eat any food you put in the tank for them. Flakes, small pellets, and granular foods are best for them. Also with treats of freeze dried, frozen or live foods.
