The Longfin Tiger Barb is one of the most attractive varieties of the Tiger Barb Puntius tetrazona. Like its predecessor, it has a very striking coloration. The body is brightly colored with four very distinctive black stripes on a yellow-to-red background. The biggest difference between this fish and its parentage is that the Longfin Tiger Barb has longer fins. When mature, their colors will tend to fade a bit, but they retain the long, elegant fins. Keep a school of these attractive fish in a nice-sized aquarium to create a lively, interesting display.
