I'm waiting for him to bring me a water sample before asking stocking questions, but it's well water and I'm pretty sure it's soft. I'm also pretty sure he wants it because an aggressive tank sounds cool to him, with him knowing as much about it as I. Maybe it's not an advisable project for him or maybe it is, I don't know what to tell him. If someone could fill me in, I could keep him on the right track. Thank you.
I had an aggressive tank recently for a few days as Serpae tetras terrorized each other and my Cories. I can't say I can recommend it. A 10 gallon wouldn't be really enough space for a reasonable-sized shoal of these fish anyway. The same would then go for Tiger Barbs, also known to be boisterous and active.
