Isn’t that normal for tiger barbs

I would start with frequent water changes and aquarium salt
Great I just did that

If you have no live plants use aquarium salts.with regular water changes.Or if you've live plants use melafix dose as needed to volume of your tank capacity for 7 days then do a water change.

I used salt once in a planted aquarium, to help with some wounded fish.
It helped the fish but killed my plants off.So that's why suggested melafix. But if your plants cope then it's all good.

They are java fern and anubias so if didn’t think salt would be a problem
