    Hi guys.

    I'm rehoming my Gouramis today because of their same-species intolerance issues and I was thinking of getting tiger barbs to replace them, the question is: Would the Tigers get on okay with the Odessas? They're all barbs but I wasn't sure how tolerant my Odessas would be of the nippy newcomers.

    If at all possible could you complete your aquarium info this will help us in answering your questions.

    I personally wouldn't mix odessas and tigers. My odessa barbs were quite nice actually. Outside them nipping at eachother I never had issues with them. I think the tigers would beat them up.

    without knowing the tank size, it's impossible to say. In a 29 gallon? no. In a 55? okay.
