Tiger Barbs are not really aggressive.People may disagree but they are just curious. If kept in 30+ they will not do alot of nipping. 20 gallons and lower they are killers. Green and albino tiger barbs are not as aggressive as the original tiger barb. But still regular tiger barbs are great looking fish. Even if you have a large tank do not keep them with fish that have long fins. All tiger barbs require schools of 5+. If you do not they get cranky. I am against the long fin variety. I mean if they can not be with fish with long fins and they can not be alone why make a longfin variety. Feed them vegetables, quality flake foods, and frozen foods.
