Albino Tiger Barb

Introducing the Albino Tiger Barb: A Stunning Addition to Your Aquarium

Prepare to be captivated by the beauty of the Albino Tiger Barb, also known as Capoeta Tetrazona. This tropical freshwater fish showcases a striking combination of white, gold, and red body coloring, complemented by vibrant reddish orange fins. With its distinct white vertical stripes resembling those of a tiger, this fish possesses a bold personality to match its remarkable appearance. To ensure harmonious tank dynamics, it is advisable to keep groups of six or more Albino Tiger Barbs.

Energetic and Entertaining: The Albino Tiger Barb is a delight to observe, with its active nature and swift swimming abilities. It thrives in schools, adding a captivating visual display to your aquarium. However, be cautious of its aggressive tendencies, especially towards fish with long, flowing fins. Consequently, it is recommended to pair Tiger Barbs with companions that can match their speed and endure lively interactions.

Suited for Aquarists of All Levels: While they may display some nipping behaviors, Tiger Barbs are generally easy to care for, making them suitable for beginner to intermediate aquarists. With a maximum length of three inches and a lifespan of up to seven years, these tropical fish are conveniently sized and offer longevity, making them an ideal choice for hobbyists and families.

Optimal Aquarium Conditions: Native to Southeast Asia, particularly Borneo and Malaysia, Tiger Barbs prefer quiet rivers and tributaries as their natural habitat. To recreate their preferred environment, provide a tank with dense vegetation, soft and slow-moving water, and ample lighting. Clear, highly oxygenated water and open spaces for swimming are essential to ensure their well-being.

Live Arrival Guarantee: Please note that when shipping with the Overnight (1 Day) option, we offer a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee for all fish shipments. Choosing any other shipping option will void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish.

Feeding Recommendations: As omnivorous fish, Albino Tiger Barbs thrive on a varied diet. They readily consume pelleted or flake food and enjoy feasting on small aquatic invertebrates. It is important to monitor their appetite to prevent overfeeding. To ensure a balanced and nutritious diet, we recommend supplementing their meals with live foods such as baby brine, Daphnia, Bloodworms, Blackworms, as well as Northfin Veggie, Community, and Bug Pro prepared foods.

Discover the remarkable beauty and lively personality of the Albino Tiger Barb. Enhance your aquarium with these stunning fish, and enjoy their vibrant colors and engaging behavior as they create a lively underwater spectacle.
