I have 3 Tiger Barbs, 3 Albino Tigers, 2 Clown Loaches, and a Common Pleco in my 20 gallon tank. I am rehoming the Loaches and Pleco as I have become aware that they overstock my tank. My Albino Tiger Barbs have been dying, but my regular Barbs are just fine. I am curious if the Albino ones are weaker or less healthy for whatever reason?

defo get rid of your loaches they do grow big about 12 inches or so ...I lost a lot of fish through the aggression of my loaches they would come out at night and bully fish and even kill them

That's so odd! I am just so confused why only the Albino Tigers are dying. The regular ones are fine, but none of them seem to be really schooling either. They don't seem to be aggressive with each other either. It's just really strange.

Tho ypu are overstocked..... Common plecos get around 2ft, and clown loaches need at least 6 in a group and they grow 1 ft. Maybe the Albino Tiger barbs are sick btw
The loaches or the plec could be killing them too. Good thing you are rehoming

They are probably easier for the loaches to see. That is why albino is so rare in nature, the can't hide.

That makes sense. Considering the Tiger Barbs look like them, but the Albino's don't.
