My GF has been wanting tiger barbs for my tank mainly the green ones. I also have 2 black mollies and 2 orange swordtails. If i keep the barbs in a group of 6 would they be ok. I have a 29 gallon tank

Re: Tank mates

Green barbs can get up to 3" long....6 would bring you to 18".....with the swords at 4" each and the mollies 3" each that would bring you to 35"....A little too much.....go down to 4 on the barbs and you'd be at the limit.....with nothing else in the tank beside what's listed.

Re: Tank mates

Tiger Barbs are fin nippers, be careful as you might stress out the other fish. Just something to watch out for.
