    Imo tiger barbs need a larger tank and should have at least 10 in a school to prevent nipping or be in a species only tank. The cardinals and tetra will be good together.

    You mean cardinals and corys right lol?

    I think that you are pressing it a bit with 8 Tiger Barbs. I think that you might have a nicer looking tank by either upping the number of cardinals, or replacing the barbs with either another small tetra or rasbora.

    Welcome to fishlore!
    I agree with the above posts. I would remove the tiger barbs and get some centerpiece fish, a ram (which is compatible with the tetras and cories you have) and a dwarf or honey gourami.

    How many a single one of each or what
  7. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    Yes, a single one of each. So 1 ram and 1 small gourami.

    What do you guys think of instead on cardinals I put in black widow tetras
  9. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    I personally would go with cardinals over black widows, they are more peaceful or so I have read.

    I have two gouramis and I find they are the best fish ever. Very friendly and love to eat out of my hand. I also have two Rams and I am not a fan of those. Very shy.

    I have a school of Harlequin Rasboras and I find these are great little fish. More active than the tetras and I like the look of them too.
