Albino Tiger Barb

Albino Tiger Barb

The Albino Tiger Barb or Capoeta Tetrazona is a tropical freshwater fish with striking body coloring of white, gold, and red and a bold personality to match. Easily distinguishable by its white vertical stripes, similar to those of a tiger, the Albino Tiger Barb also fashions vibrant reddish orange fins. Groups of six or more are advised to reduce the likelihood of your Albino Tiger Barb upsetting its tankmates.

What are they like?

Albino Tiger Barbs are a fun to watch species, making them a popular choice for owners. These active fish enjoy swimming at high speeds in schools and look beautiful on display. Be wary of their aggressive tendencies, however. Tiger Barbs are known to be nippy towards fish with long, flowing fins and therefore not a good choice for community aquariums. Pair the Tiger Barb with similarly speedy companions and fish that fare well amongst boisterous personalities.

For whom is the Albino Tiger Barb suited?

Despite their naughty nipping behaviors, Tiger Barbs are generally very easy to care for and so can be a great option for beginner to intermediate aquarists. Reaching up to three inches in length and living for up to seven years, Tiger barbs are conveniently sized tropical fish with longevity suited for hobbyists and families.

The ideal conditions for the Albino Tiger Barb

Native to Southeast Asia, Borneo and Malaysia, Tiger barbs are most frequently found
inhabiting quiet rivers and tributaries. They prefer living in tanks with thick vegetation to mimic their natural habitat with soft, slow moving water and ample lighting. Water should be clear and highly oxygenated with large open areas for swimming.
