I have a 24 inch long and 12 inch wide tank, with an 15 inch depth. Currently containing: 3 Peppered Corydoras 1 Bristlenose Plec They're all relatively young, the plec still being just about 2 inches long. I was recently planning on getting a school of 6 Tiger Barbs but with these tank mates and a small tank it may not be the best idea... I liked the Tiger Barbs for their variation, colour, tenacity and activeness. I will certainly get Tiger Barbs in a larger, species only tank at one point. For the meantime, what would be a good tank mate for my current occupants? I'm not a fan of live bearers and would prefer a peaceful species of Barb if possible. All I want is a medium-small active shoalling species to bring my bottom-dwelling tank to life!
