    Has anyone had any success having these 2 together? I have a 22g with 10 TG and I saw the Dwarf Perticola at my LFS and I really wna get them. But im afraid the TGs will be too aggressive, anyone had any success with them?

    As far as aggression goes they would be fine (I have kept them with aggressive Mbuna successfully).

    The issue is that they prefer to be in a group and I don't think that a 22 gallon is big enough for them, even 1 alone, they can grow to 4.5 inches and IMO is a little big for a 22 gallon.

    Anyways hope this helps.

    Tiger barbs only get to 3" , a 20g LONG(30") minimum because they are super active fish but a 30g would be better.

    also Dwarf Perticola need to be kept in numbers , atleast 4 or 5 to feel safe , if you only get one you will hardly ever see it because it will always be hiding, I also wouldn't put them in a 22g tank.
