I have two white skirt tetra that have been nibbling on each other and other fish. I know they are a schooling fish but they have been given to me as a pair. I've moved them from the community tank as I suspect they are killing their tank mates.
Can I put them in my 26 gallon tank with 8 tiger barbs?
Or will they cause some ruckus?

I have 15 white skirts in my 28 gallon....they nibble at one another but leave my big guy alone...they have never gone after any other fish than their own...I do not believe the skirts are the culprit in this situation.
Get more skirts amd see what happens.

I have three green barbs that school with two green platinum barbs, they are the bullies of the tank, nothing too violent unless they unleash their “fury” on the plants. I feel confident that you won’t have to worry about the barbs at least!
