    I believe that the Tiger Barbs should have a bigger tank. They can grow pretty big.

    I don’t know . But I don’t think they are temp compatible, but I could be wrong

    Overstocked... personal opinion, some would say yes. It ultimately boils down to filter size (an overpowered filter would be ideal, as well as having nitrates low - under 40ppm!) So if the filter can handle the tank, and you dont have water quality issues... then no. Just well stocked.

    If you are going by the inch per gallon thing then yes but that was an old wives tale and is ridiculous. As vic said its all about filtration.

    By my standards, no. My 20 is a lot more stocked than yours. A lot more.
