The Tiger Barb is native to Malaysia and Indonesia and possibly parts of Indochina. It is also found in other areas which are not its native range. P. tetrazona of Malaysia/Indonesia with black-edged dorsal fins and P. anchisporus of Borneo with red-edged dorsal fins look very similar and are both called the Tiger Barb.
