    I have a few tiger barbs and they are all a little chubby in the stomach. I wouldn’t worry about it but they are schooling fish. I would recommend keeping them in odd numbers and a minimum of 5 if possible with tank size and tank mates. Don’t over cloud tank but schooling fish like tiger barbs are recommended to be kept in odd numbers.
