There are a couple of other colour versions of Tiger Barbs (Green and Gold) and this one looks like a bit of a mix and match, they all will shoal and breed with the normal Tiger Barb (They are all the same species) and when they do they often come out patchy like your one, good breeders will cull (Kill) fish like this, but there are some pretty poor Tiger Barbs on the market at the moment.

They need to be in shoals of several fish, and it doesn't matter what colour they are, just as long as they are Tiger Barbs.

Its been in my experience that green tiger barbs are little buggers and are way worse fin nippers than normal tigers... just be careful what you have in with them
