    Can anyone give me a head up on this? I have researched on my own but for some reason when I look it up on my own I just go in circles and can't even give myself a solid yes or no.

    Depends on tank size. I would get more barbs if you have room. 12 to 15 would work better than 6. And if you don't have the room for that many, I would not get them at all.

    Yes, what are the dimensions of the tank? Tiger barbs have a reputation for being very nippy, but it seems the more you have, the less nippy they are. Some put them only in a species only tank for this reason.

    I have 50 gal. I've noticed the Rams tend to kinda get one barb separated from the group and kinda bully him. They don't really do anything except refuse to let them get back to the school... I'll go grab prob 6 more barbs in a few days.
