Good community fish wanted!

    Hi, I have an albino shark, a clown loach, two dwarf gourami's 1 male, 1 female, 1 snowball plec, 1 catfish.

    My tank looks very scarce and I'm looking for a fish which can be happy in a group between 8-12 in numbers.
    I absolutely love tiger barbs but a few people have said not a good idea and a few have said they would be fine in numbers. However can anyone make me fall in love with anything else?? Post pics and share your fantastic brains!

    We need to know the tank size especially as you have clown loach which should be kept in groups of 5/6

    Yeah, tank size would help. Clowns like to be in groups and they need a lot of tank. As far as barbs go, they're better in groups. I don't know if I'd say they're cured of nipping when kept in groups. But I've seen tigers and clowns shoal together back when I had my 125. Everyone was fine.

    I only have a 180 litre tank.
    But long term plan is to get a 6ft tank and rehome the clowns when they are getting too big.
