As the topic says, I am interested in setting up my 55 gallon tank to be a Pictus Catfish tank. I want the Pictus to be the main fish of the tank, with the aquascaping set up around their needs. I currently want to put 5 Pictus with 3 Roseline Barbs and 10 Tiger Barbs, but AqAdvisor says you gotta have 5 Roselines and I don't have room for that many without cutting the other fish out. The Roselines are a gorgeous fish and I would love to have a few in the tank to bring some color into it. Anyone have any experience in this area that can lend some advice?

I would definitely get more than three otherwise than can be aggressive towards each other and the more you have the aggression will be spread out rather than focusing on one or two other fish. Now with that being said 5 in a 55gal will be pushing it when they become full grown.
