Gouramis and Tiger Barbs?

    Does anyone know how well these would mix together? I have a Dwarf in my 20 gallon and I will PROBABLY add some tetras, but I've always loved TB....I know as long as they are in groups of 5-8 they tend to be less aggressive to others. Any thoughts?

    hello. i have a gourami and two tiger barbs and they work fine together. I heard that t/b dont go the well with dwarf gouramis because they are little so you should look into getting A blue or gold gourami

    I would not risk it, as they might just find the Gourami's fins too tempting. It's not really proven that keeping Tigers in larger groups reduces aggression... although I wouldn't blame any shoaling fish kept alone or in a very small group for being aggressive!
