Green Tiger Barb

Introducing the Green Tiger Barb - the stunning tropical freshwater fish with an adventurous spirit and captivating beauty. With its iridescent green body, adorned with dark vertical stripes reminiscent of a tiger, and vibrant reddish orange fins, the Green Tiger Barb is a true marvel to behold. This fish is perfect for those seeking an eye-catching addition to their aquarium.

The Green Tiger Barb is not only visually striking but also possesses a lively personality that is sure to bring excitement to your aquatic habitat. These active swimmers love to dart around at high speeds in schools, creating a mesmerizing spectacle. However, it's important to note their tendency towards aggression. Tiger Barbs are known to nip at fish with long, flowing fins, so it's best to keep them in a species-specific or similarly active companions' tank.

While their behavior may require some caution, caring for Green Tiger Barbs is relatively straightforward, making them an excellent choice for both beginner and intermediate aquarists. With a maximum length of three inches and a lifespan of up to seven years, these conveniently sized tropical fish offer long-term enjoyment for hobbyists and families alike.

To create the ideal environment for your Green Tiger Barb, it's important to replicate their natural habitat in Southeast Asia, specifically Borneo and Malaysia. These fish thrive in tanks with thick vegetation, which provides them with hiding spots and recreates their preferred environment. Soft, slow-moving water with ample lighting enhances their well-being, while clear and highly oxygenated water contributes to their overall health. Creating large open areas for swimming allows them to indulge in their active nature.

Feeding your Green Tiger Barb is a delight as they are omnivorous and enjoy a diverse diet. Alongside pelleted or flake food, they relish small aquatic invertebrates. However, their appetite can be insatiable, so it's essential to supplement their diet with a mix of live foods, including baby brine, Daphnia, Bloodworms, and Blackworms. To ensure a balanced and nutritious intake, we recommend incorporating Northfin Veggie, Community, and Bug Pro prepared foods.

At Flip Aquatics, we prioritize the well-being of our fish during transit. When you choose our Overnight (1 Day) shipping option, we guarantee 100% Live Arrival for all fish shipments. Please note that this guarantee becomes void for shipments under all other shipping options.

    Green Tiger Barb

    I got 7 Green Tiger Barbs 2 weeks ago and they are thriving and healthy. These beautiful fish are so eye catching with their green and gold markings with touches of bright orange on their fins. They are showpieces for sure. They are so vibrant they are visible from across the room. They like to swim in schools near the top of the water. Great experience with Flip Aquatics who were able to get these to me in 110 degree heat. Thank you Flip! I am very pleased!
