The picture on this site does not do this fish justice!! I have 2 of them and they are absolutely beautiful....like green jewels. I also have 2 "regular" tiger barbs and when I added the green ones to the tank, they instantly took to each other and began schooling together. PS...I also have a large Angel, 4 pink kissing gouramis, and 2 blue gouramis. Tiger Barbs dont really bug the other fish as long as they have friends of their own kind and lots of plants :)

The chinese algae eater will stop eating algae but eat old fish flakes at the bottom of your tank when older and will start gaining weight and slowing it down.

i have 4 albinos and they are nothing but peaceful to their other tankmates. they will occasionally play fight with themselves but they never do any damage.

Tiger barbs are my favorite fish. They are very colorful. I had 5 white clouds with 4 tiger barbs and 3 alibino barbs. They were peaceful with each other. On the other hand, I had 3 danios, and 2 died mysteriously. Now I have 6 tiger barbs and 5 serpae tetras. I feed them flake food everyday and shrimp as a treat.

I have never had a problem with the algae eater actually crawling out of the tank, however it did eat my ghost shrimp, kill my neons, and then kill another rather large fish. I have no clue how this little guy has killed my fish. I am down to two fish, and the eater, and I am worried to buy more. I would not recommend this guy if you are rather attached to your fish. I hear they are either extremely good, or extremely bad. Watch out for these guys!

I have one and he is the most fun to watch. if you get one you should feed it par-boiled vegtables like lettuce and cucumbers. They will eat them all day long and they will also eat the algae when they get bored with the vegtables.

We own one tiger barb. The first one died but this one is doing just fine. We have an assortment of fish, including one angelfish many guppies and some mollies. The tiger barb does like to nibble but has never seriously harmed another fish. Now the angel fish on the other hand is the one we have to worry about!

It sits under the filter and lets the food come to it rather than actualy cleaning the walls of the tank. It only moves if you try to look at it, upon walking up to the glass, it darts out from under the filter. Aside from a little obesity, its healthy and low maintenance.
