My tinfoil barbs are out of control. They seem to be dominating the tank. I have 3 in there with an arowana and a stingray and some other fish. My fish have been more timid since they entered the tank. Has anyone had expereince with tinfoil barbs stressing out other fish? I am starting to regret having added them to the tank. They are extremely hardy and fast. Hard to catch these suckers.. ANy advice on keeping these barbs with other fish would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Larry

I dont know much about any of your fish, but I think your tank is over stocked. Most rays need 200 or more gallons and some Arowanas need just as much. Also I think TinFoil Barbs are schooling fish and like to be in groups of 5 or more and can get veeeery large (I'm thinking 12-ish inches?). Sorry if I didnt really answer your question, but I thought I would just let you know on my thoughts =)
