How many cherry barbs do you think could go in a 10 gallon tank?


Thanks in advance

I personally wouldn't put cherry barbs in a 10 gallon. They need to be in a group of 4 minimum and are pretty active. They made use of every inch of my 37g when I had mine.

But you could probably fit a couple hundred, maybe even 500 or more into a 10 gallon. They're pretty slim.

I would expect it to be a little rough in a 10, but not overly aggressive. They're barbs.

I am *not* Captain Obvious! I am Rear Admiral Obvious, respect my authoritah!

So does 12 in a 20 actually scale down to 6 in a 10?

I'd stick with 6, but make sure to stay on top of water changes as ammonia/nitrates can easily build up in a 10 gallon.
