75 Gallon Tank Tiger Barbs with Neon Tetras

Mosko

I have a 75 Gallon tank with 9 Tiger Barbs and other compatible fish. I used to have Glowlight Tetras with the Tiger Barbs and they got along just fine. I'm thinking of adding fully grown Neon Tetras to the tank. Is it safe to assume that if the Tiger Barbs got along with the Glowlights, that they'll also get along with Neons? or will the bright colors of the Neons attract fin nipping?

Being shorter finned, they probably wont go after the neons too much. I would add 2 or 3 more barbs to the school though, helps prevent issues.

I think they’ll be fine. They have plenty of room in a 75. Although my tiger barbs are now only with loaches and a flying fox in my 75, I had them with rasboras in a 29 before I upgraded and never had an issue.
