I got 14 tiger barbs in my 50 gallon long tank. They are aggressive but I like them I'm in the process of giving away my harlequin rasbora because I know they won't survive. I have 8 panda corydoras plan on getting 4 more soon.

I want to know what you guys have had success on keeping with tiger barbs that swim in the same area? I'm thinking of getting 12 zebra danios but I want something with color.

I really wanna keep these guys but I don't want a bare tank. I really don't like the other tiger barbs.

Just Tiger Barbs.
They can get really aggressive or just be nuisances, but either way I do not want to subject other fish to the stress of living with them.

Yea that's what I'm worried about. I feel this tank to big to only have barbs in it.

Roseline sharks do well, or did in my tank. The more you get, the calmer the are usually. I had 40-50 at one time. I know you can't fit that many in there, but add more, it will be worth it. Also, get some of the green ones. Different color for the tank, but the tiger barbs all get along, no racism lol.

I've always wanted to see a large school of tiger barbs. I'm thinking 30 or 35 of them would be awesome in a 50 gallon tank.

Clown Loaches get along great with tiger barbs. In my experience I've even seen them swimming with them as one of their own. A very entertaining combination for sure.

Yes, they school together.

I will see if I can dig up an old photo.

Can't find any with the large school I had. Here is one in the beginning. I started adding 10 week after that. Will look more tomorrow.

I must have the weirdest tiger barbs in the world. They've never bothered any tank mates (and I've had them in two different tanks as I change things around) all they do is hang out together. I have had them in a tank for two years now with neons, rosy barbs, and celebes rainbows. They totally ignore all the other fish. My barbs are going on 5 years old...
