I have a gold barb and rosey barb that is not doing well in my community tank together and I have a 3 gallon at work with 7 rcs and 1 otto that I would like to move the gold barb into to allow it to heal before i trade it in.

Will the gold barb eat the RCS?

How many gallons is your community tank?

It may be a better idea to get more barbs to help their aggression. To the best of my knowledge and limited experience all barbs do best in groups of 5+.

I tried ghost shrimp in a tank with barbs and they just became snacks.

Almost all fish will eat anything that fits in their mouth or can be chewed up into pieces that will fit, especially if it moves. Why do you think we dump brine shrimp into our tanks? It isn't so the fish can make friends with them.
