Yes they do look very similar. Too bad their temperments are not the same. Barbs are aggressive and Clowns are darlings.

I know some one who has a huge tank of clown loaches and tiger barbs. They swim back and forth together. Really looks awesome.

I have 5 tigers and 2 clowns and they seem to play with eachother ALL the time. Everynight, when I feed my fishies, after they eat. They play like tag with eachother

If you get a big enough school they seem to mellow out, but it takes a big school.

I've also noticed that they (tiger barbs) tend to leave the much bigger fish alone especially if the other fish don't have long flowing fins or tails (things that they can easily grab on to)
