in my experience i have rosy barbs and they are nippers if you have a fine leafed planted they will most likley nibble on it. I wouldn't imagine it would be any different with green tiger barbs. Just my .02

I"ve never seen Tiger barbs eat plants, but Tiger barbs (and all their colour morphs) need to be kept in schools of at least 6 to inhibit aggression and would need a much bigger tank than that.

You would be better off with Gold or Cherry barbs.
