    One of my friends wanted me to ask you guys for a list of compatible fish with tiger barbs I know for sure he wants 7-9 barbs.

    Corys and Kuhlis would work for the bottom. Many species of tetras would work also. You could try Rams, Apistos, or Kribs, but their fins may get nipped. I would try something like this:
    5-6 Kuhli Loaches/Smaller Corydoras(pandas maybe)
    7-9 Tiger Barbs
    1-2 Rams, Apistos, or Kribs

    Instead of the corys and kuhlis you could try tetras or danios.

    In a 20? More tiger barbs. I wouldn't put ANYTHING else with them.

    Even then they might kill each other :;smack

    Okay then he was just wanting some type of bottom feeder so kuhlis would even be out of the question.

    I really don't think there are bottom feeders that would be good with tigers in that size tank. If it were bigger I think it'd be a possibility but I don't think it would work in a 20.
