    90G tank with C-360 + pre-filter | Hydor 300W inline heater set to 76f

    12 tiger barbs
    1 juvy texas cichlid

    I'm thinking about adding a RTS to the tank. If I do, could I up my tiger barbs to a total of 20? Also, Once a week 60% water change seem good?

    Any other stocking suggestions?

    I worry about your Texas cichlid attacking the barbs when it gets older. I think 20 would be fine for the tank size though.

    I wouldn't add an RTS personally - Texas cichlids can be aggressive, and your tank is only 48" long. For a fish that can get 12", that's not a lot of space.

    I would consider replacing the texas with a rts. The Texas was more of a bio-load palce holder when I moved my Discus to a dif tank with a sponge filter.

    Ah okay. I think that would be fine then!
