Tiger Barbs And Silver Dollars

  1. Catrexha Initiate Member

    I have a 40 gallon tank with 3 silver dollars, an angel fish, a red tail shark, and a pleco. I plan to get a new angelfish soon. With the fish I have in the tank, would I be able to add some albino tiger barbs? I've heard that you cannot have tiger barbs with silver dollars due to their size but I've also heard that you can keep them together. I don't know how much the space in my tank would affect it.

    I wouldn't have Tiger Barbs with Angels for sure, they are bad about fin nipping.

    Welcome to fishlore!
    Silver dollars and a red tail shark need a larger tank than a 40g. What type of pleco?
    The rest of the fish aren't compatible with angelfish, either.

    Oh wow. I went to quite a few different stores before getting the fish I have right now and they all said there was plenty of room. I've kept an angelfish in here for a while now and had no problems so far. I don't really know what kind of pleco it is to be honest. My dad bought it for me for my birthday.

    I completely forgot about that, thanks.

    Can you take a pic of the pleco?
    Pet stores usually don't give good advice, they are trying to sell you things.
