I was wondering what are some hardy schooling fish there are.
Personally, I like tiger barbs. They are fast and active when in the right tank and when in a large enough school spend the day chasing each other. However they are semI aggressive and generally don't go well with community fish especially ones with long flowing fins. Tiger barbs also get bigger than your average schooling fish such as tetras so they do require larger tanks as adults.
Never had great luck with zebra danios in the past.Zebra Danio, Serpae Tetra are a couple I had great luck with.
Yes they are, I too had a shoal of 13 tigers(a mix of regular,Green and a Gold), I foolishly moved them into a smaller tank with no visual breaks and they decimated each other over a month or so. All that was left was my large Green male who is a absolute thug. He's in a larger tank now with 4 other Tigers(adding more soon). On Greens I think they are just a colour morph.Agree. Question: Are green barbs as aggressive as the tiger barb? And is the correct term "green tiger barb"?
I lost a tank full of tiger barbs and have been preparing for new fish for a month or so now. I am very close and am considering a school of green barbs.
They will be alone unless they are a bit more docile than the tiger barb?
Not sure if they're THAT hardy nowadays. Had a horrible experience when half of my zebra danios died after a water change.Zebra danios are probably THE most hardy fish I think. People use them to cycle new tanks, so they can handle pretty much everything
