    Sounds good. On your profile you filled out 8 barbs, and started the tank only yesterday. Is this right? You do know about the nitrogen cycle, right? I just thought it seemed like a bad idea to put 8 barbs in an uncycled tank- they'll start dying off before too long.

    I all ready had an establish tank a 10gal the filer is an aqua clear 200 which is now in the new tank which I set up on the 24 April the old gravel is also now in the new tank as welll . I do not intend to add any more fish until my 2nd filter has had time to grow bacteria all the fish are very happy no sighs of fin rot or ick they are schooling and displaying to each other if spotted I will do some water changes if not I will do so on the weekend.
    It will be a single species tank I might get some greens I’m not shore yet, I love the tigers they go through so many color changes with their antics, and I Never had the greens so I don’t know if they have the same type of displays.
