If your Tiger Barbs weren't chasing each other then you should be concerned. The chasing behavior is in their nature. They usually don't hurt each other too bad. No worries.

I don't know how big a tank you have, but, if you have the room for 3-4 more Tigers, you might consider adding them. They tend to keep their aggression more among themselves, the more of them there are.
