    I have a 19G tank with 3 Peppered corys which I plan on increasing to 6. I would like to get 2 Amano Shrimp and am now thinking about some middle layer fish to finish off the tank. I like the look of Gold Barbs and would like to get a group of 2 or 3, but as they are Barbs I'm hesitant about whether they would be okay with Amano Shrimp.

    They should be ok but get at least 6 as they are schooling fish. I would do 8 barbs.

    Would that not overstock my tank?

    No. How long is the tank?

    it might be a 15G. Someone told me wrong. It's 58 litres and 24" long
