`yeah I've read about those tiger barbs :o) little tikes. No I've got cherry barbs and they are fine with the honeys. When I started I didn't know anything about fish so I researched all compatible community fish and choose small species with the most contrasting colours.
I've got 3 cherry barbs, 2 dwarf honey gouramis, cardinals 5 now (lost 1 sadly) and 6 corys
The only problem is the cherrys are right greedy beggers and usually get most of the good stuff (live food) the honeys swim happily with the other fish, just tend to hide when I get close to the tank, but I think they're starting to get use to me which is really cool.
The honey are soooo pretty now when I got them they were quite plain and I'm not surprised the fs said I had a male and female orginally, then they started to change colour going deeper yellow with red and black ( i originally thought something was up with them). I did want to get females cos their colours get even better I've read. Geddy the male cherry goes the most beautiful red colour when he's in the mood for love ;) It's been suggest I give away one of the males and get a female but I just can't and from what I found out My tank's not big enough to get females with 2 males. They swim around and play together so I think they're content enough. So I opted for the corys.
