    Default Green Tiger Barb gone Black


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi
    One of my green Tiger Barbs has changed colour to black. I have 2 other green Barbs and they now seem to pick on it and have nibbled his underside fins away. He/she is also pointing downwards and looks listless.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers

    Thats a sign he is stressed. Tigers like be in groups of at least 6 in a tank no smaller than 20g, preferably larger since they are very active. How big is your tank?
    55g: Future home of a green terror and 2 convicts
    29g: Convicts, tiger barbs, corys, snails
    29g: 3 fancy goldfish
    5g: Betta

    This sometimes happens when there in a bad mood for some reason, or when they get old.

    So should I leave him in the tank or isolate? Only had them around 4 months so don't think they are too old.

    Sorry I meant gold barbs. 260 litres is roughly 70 gallons.
