    Watch out as the tiger barbs may try to nip her fins.

    Congrats! I currently have a veiled marbled angelfish just like him. He is now three years old and still has never tried to eat my young guppies

    Tiger barbs are afraid of him, he turns to face them anytime they come near him so I think he will be ok. Plus he is so much bigger then them the are intimidated. As soon as I put him in the Tigers started schooling which they never really did before.

    He is about 6.5 inches tall!

    Hmm, do you have him in the 20g stated in your profile? That is way too small for a 6" angelfish.

    That angelfish is beautiful.

    It looks almost exactly like the one I just rehomed yesterday :( (I didn't have a good home for it anymore after my tank collapsed)

    So the tiger barbs are unfortunately starting to nip the angel, should I try upping the school of barbs or just return the angel?
