Mixing Barbs

metal_fish

Read My Sig for full stock list, But I have 4 rosy barbs and I was wondering if I could put 2 or 3 cherry's barbs or tiger's with them. Would they school together? Should I just get more rosy barb? thanks

HI Metal_fish,
IMO I would go with more rosy barbs. They are very peaceful compared to the 'demon' tiger barbs for nipping! And with the Gourami's in your tank, I wouldnt want any fin nippers. I have had all of these fish at one time or another and I have to say, tho I love the look of the tiger barbs, I would not bring in any more to my tanks due to the aggressive nature, towards others and each other. I found the rosy barbs to be peaceful and they didnt bother anyone else.

I used to have a rosy barb and a tiger barb who were best friends. They definitely go well together.
