I Have 5 tiger barbs in a 10 gal. tank could i add a betta fish?
Certainly not. They eat him alive!
I would strongly recommend against it for two reasons: 1, your tank is already overstocked. 2, tiger barbs and bettas do not make good tankmates. Bettas generally don't do well as community fish, anyway. They're loners in the wild.
i made that mistake when i was a kid...the tiger barbs...made it suffer...they will go for his fins until it dies....please don't...
Unfortunately your tank is already horribly overstocked, and with the wrong species. Tiger Barbs would eat the Betta and Tiger Barbs need space to swim and swim and swim. 10 gallons is no good. I have 8 Tiger Barbs in a 55 gallon...
I wouldn't, as already said, the tiger barbs will eat him alive.
