Lol, I know I have a lot of fish, which is why I didn't really want to add much more, BUT I figured if the Odessa didn't accept the others, it was pretty much by itself, and that wouldn't be giving the Odessa a proper chance. SOOO, I bought 2 more today and the Odessa has almost completely mellowed out!! Im trying to figure out which fish I may pull. But no, absolutely NO aggression issues . I've had this set up going like this for about 3 months.VWTDI02 said:Rosy and red glass barbs are pretty much the same except that the red glass ones tend to be more energetic. As Brandon said, they will not school together either. Honestly I'm surprised that there hasn't been any more fighting prior to adding the odessa barb. I think that your best bet is to simply return the odessa and call it a day. That tank is already over stocked and adding more fish will only make it worse.
Yeah I was most concerned about pristellas, I don't think they could have withstood too much more bullying, they're back to being a somewhat happy three some, they probably could use a few more in their pack, but I want to pull a few fish out, they may go. Maybe pull the pink danios, and the glowlite danios. The tank is well planted, and aggression is usually a quick nip by one of the rams, or the tiger barbs and serpaes fighting amongst themselves.endlercollector said:Different kinds of barbs don't generally school together unless they're totally freaked out (had this happen once when my gold and rosy barb schools were reduced to 1 and 2--ugh). Their aggressiveness really varies in the presence of other kinds of barbs.
You need to round out a couple of your schools to 5-6 minimum. I'm amazed that your pristellas can deal with this situation.
Everyone else in the tank is ok? Is it heavily planted?
