Generally, barbs are mid-size schooling fish. They are slightly more aggressive than tetras and larger barbs can handle mid-size African cichlid tanks. They are also hardy and offer a lot of movement in the tank. Tiger barbs are the most prolific barb in the aquarium hobby in part due to their hardiness and also their low price.
