The lively, colorful, and very hardy, Tiger Barbs are often a choice of new fish owners. To date we usually find 3 varieties in most lfs - The "Sumatranus" or "Regular" tiger, the Green tiger and the Golden or Albino tiger. The Green tiger barb, Moss-banded barb, or Moss barb is one of the most notable colour morphs of the regular Tiger Barb. The Albino tiger barb is another colour morph, the biggest difference from that of their parentage is that the Albino tiger does not always have gill covers.
In the days to come, 3 more new varieties will be on the market. These breeding forms are called the Gold-green-stripe tiger, the Albino-platinum tiger and the Green-platinum tiger barbs. Their aquarium requirements, behaviors, care and feeding are the same as their parentage.
They will be a lovely addition to all those hobbyists who keep tigers
