I have a 150 litre (bout 30 gallon I believe) tank and while waiting for it to cycle I wanted to do some research on tank mates for my 5 rosy barbs. I currently have the 5 who enjoy chasing each other around readily never aggressive just seems to be chasing I was wondering if whether introducing a male (or 2) neon dwarf gourmai's would cause trouble the tank is about 1 metre long and has live plants etc so I believe the males should be of with their own parts of the tank but will the rosy barbs be ok with them? any help woudl be useful

Hello!

Only ONE male GourmaI with 1-2 females per tank as the males will bicker. Rosy Barbs grow to approx 4", I would suggest a larger GourmaI like the Blue or Gold GourmaI or large active Tetras.

I used to have some rosy barbs and I had them with a two platinum gouramis and they went great together they never bother each other , but I wouldn't recommend getting a dwarf gouramI since the rosy barbs will be the same size as the DG. My gouramis were quite a bit larger than my rosy barbs.
