29 Gallon Species Only Tank. Question

  1. Dave125g Fishlore VIP Member

    Thinking about what I'm gonna do with the 29 gallon after my fry are big enough to join the rest of the school in the 125. I was thinking about tiger barbs. I just have a few questions. How many? What temperature? Are live plants a good idea with them?

    Hi, this might help you.

    Tiger Barbs will be best kept at 70-78 fahrenheit, but optimal should be around 75.
    I am not totally sure about full numbers if you are doing species-only, but I can think of around 12 - 14 would be best.

    You can do live plants with them, and they will like the coverage from taller plants in background areas.
