abjsBeanFish said:Hi. Tiger barbs are usually thought as tiger devils in the forums because they can get aggressive with other fish and nip their fins. I don't believe that is true if you keep them in a big enough school (at least 6, 8+ is so much better) and in a big enough tank. I keep 8 Tiger Barbs in a 36 gal and they are fine with 4 Mollys that are hanging in there. I am yet to encounter a single problem with the barbs. When I added the Mollys I initially added them in a group of 6 and the Tiger Barbs were curious for the 1st hour which meant a lot of chasing. After that hour my Tiger Barbs calmed down and I am yet to see anymore aggression, the Mollys now swim between the barbs and the barbs do not even care.
However in your case your tank is a little bit smaller so I would just suggest to go easy and make it an only species tank.
I would suggest to just add more tiger barbs and make it an only species tank. I would just up the school to 10-12 barbs an leave it like that. You can get more albino barbs, more tiger barbs or more green barbs, does not matter, they will still school together.
I see, thanks for the helpMikeRad89 said:You could do 6 neons and 8 barbs. Temperature requirements are a little off but it wouldn't be horrrific. Just doesn't make for a terribly exciting tank IMO.
The one I got is very small and I have a friend who can take him when he is biggerBeanFish said:Rainbow sharks need 30 gal alone and will get aggressive and territorial when they reach maturity. Other than that I think the barbs are ok.
The rosy barbs and gold barbs both need to be in groups of 6+ of their own type. The green barbs will school with the tigers though.C-Foss said:Hey everyone, just a final update, I went ahead and got 2 long finned rosy barbs, 2 gold barbs and 2 green barbs, along with a rainbow shark
You could add 10 kuhli loaches. They are a bottom dweller so the bards should leave them aloneC-Foss said:I just relocated my cichlids out of my 25 gallon tank, and now all that are left are 2 albino tiger barbs and 2 tiger barbs. What would be some good tank mates? I've had some success keeping angel fish with my tiger barbs in the past and was hoping to try again
Angelfish need warmer temps than tiger barbs, so I wouldn't do it.C-Foss said:I just relocated my cichlids out of my 25 gallon tank, and now all that are left are 2 albino tiger barbs and 2 tiger barbs.
