This is sort of a continuation of a thread I made a couple of weeks ago, but I'm still wondering what to stock in my 37 gallon tank. I already have some Tiger barbs, and I plan to create a fairly large school of them in said tank. However, I've been wanting to add some sort of centerpiece fish- would I be able to stock blood parrots with a fairly large school of barbs (around 10-15)?

Unfortunately a 37g is too small for blood parrots. How about a female convict cichlid?
Sounds good to me! I'll look into it. I was also considering keeping around 5-6 cory cats instead of one oddball fish. I was considering a maximum stocking of 12 tigers and 6 cories, or at least 10 tigers and 5 cories. In large enough schools, I don't think they'll bother each other too much.

Either stocking sounds fine to me. I like the idea of the Tigers and the Cory cats. Though, there is a possibility that the tigers could nip the cories.The bigger school should keep the nipping down, but you never know. I kept Tigers and Cories in a 30g once and they did just fine. Hopefully if you do choose that route, it will be the same for you. If the Tigers do not work out with the cories, make sure to have a back-up plan for them.

When I introduce the cories, I'll be sure to have my old 12 gallon on standby as a temporary home for them. Who knows, if it doesn't work out it would probably be a valid reason to start up a second community tank!
