    So I have a month old 20 Gallon tank with 3 peppered cory's and am planning on getting a bristlenose and a small shoal of 6 tiger barb. I heard that tigers can get aggressive with corys but I thought if I introduced the tigers LAST and while they were still small, there may be less of a problem. Any thoughts??

    Tiger barbs are best in a species only tank.

    You should be fine as far as aggression towards the cories but yeah tiger barbs are a pain in the arse they might not make it. Cories are almost indestructible if you give em the environment they need

    I wouldn't keep tigers in a 20G. A bigger tank + a bigger school is a better idea I think.
