Hi all, have a dillema on my hands. Yesturday a freind of mine asked If I would take her 2 tiger barbs, apparently she like her freshwater crab way more then the fish. I'm thinking they may work in my 10 gallon which currently has 10 ghost shrimp, 1 bristlenose pleco, and 4 white clouds (3 males). The pleco is moving into 55 gal. this weekend; I just stocked it with 6 glass catfish and 2 Farlowella sp. (twig or wiptail cats). I knew right away that the barbs wouldn't work in the 55 (mainly cause I'm moving 4 neon teras in there as well).

I'm curious to know if anyone has tried white clouds and tiger barbs before, and if so what was the result.

Also If anyone was wondering the 55 was cycled without fish and was ready to go 2 weeks ago, a short notice road trip made wait.

I'm pretty sure the tiger barbs would pick on the clouds. Especially since they're much more aggressive when they're only in twos they do much better in large groups. Honestly I would tell her to give them to the LFS but that's just my opinion.
