    How many guppies? 3 or 11?

    What gender are the DGs?

    I would add 2 more five banded barbs and leave it at that.

    11 guppies
    And they are male and female
    Okey tanks

    I like the guramies but are they fighting or did you have them in the same tank sense young

    Are you sure they are male and female? Females are hard to find and rarely sold. 2 Males will usually fight to the death. Could you post a picture of them?

    If you really want to add more fish I agree that adding 2 more barbs is a good idea. The bigger the school the more interesting their behavior. Or you could add a bristle nose pleco. They are pretty cool and their colors are nice once they are settled and relaxed. I wouldn't add more than that because you are already pretty fully stocked. This is a picture of one just like mine.

    The gouramis do look like male and female, so no need to worry. I agree with BD, the stock is fine once you add two more barbs.
