    I like TB alot as well! However I have 9 who are still figuring out the pecking order, and have been for the past 2ish weeks.

    If I add more would the pecking order get disturbed .....one is bigger then the rest and he seems to chase the others around a bit https://vimeo.com/169429077

    how many is that? how big is your tank?
    i am no expert by any means but i started with 12 to cycle and added 6 twice. the big dog stayed in charge but he definantly has an order. when #1 is busy, 2 and 3 with their red noses are ready to go. i just put in 2 fire mouths yesterday and the barb pecking order showed brightly. i just added more caves and hiding spots for the FM. i feel like I'm running an apartment complex and the barbs are bad tenants! all in all, much better than yesterday.

    6 in a 125g I'm planning on adding to the stock this week may get more barbs or some clown loaches

    I suggest higher plants or more higher decorations! You'll want lots of cover and hiding spots esp with TB! It will help the loaches as well. You can add more TB and they'll fall in line quickly.
