They are omnivorous and will thrive on live, frozen and dry food. It is also a good idea to provide some vegetable matter as well.
Barbs are hardy, active and mostly a peaceful fish that are best kept in groups in a community tank. Tiger Barbs are known to nip at fins therefore it is best not to keep them with long finned fish and with small slow moving fish. Provide enough fish to school and the fin nipping tendency will be lessened.View Our Fish Compatibility Guide
