You'll need to keep them in a group. 6 is a good number. No special requirements for them. They are quite hardy.:)

Okay, well I have 2 Danio's at the moment.

I'll buy 4 more, which will give me 6 Danio's because the other guy up above said that I should keep them in a pack of 6.

I dont know if I should buy a Tiger Barb, it might be a bit crowded in there with 6 fish and 1 Tiger Barb... hmm..

never get only 1 tiger barb, you need at least 6 since they are schooling fish.

Not in my opinion. Danios are surface dwellers whereas tiger barbs are mid dwellers so you can get away with 6 tiger barbs. If you are in doubts with tiger barbs, get some pentazona barbs instead.:)

well we also need to know the size of the tank before we do any research on what fish can go will with them. I currently have 7 danios and they are doing fine with my otos and ghost shrimp. I will also soon find out if they will fit with my bolivian rams

If you have strong filtration and dont mind frequent water changes it might work since both danios and tiger barbs are hardy.

you definitely have to keep the tiger barbs in a group. Those little buggers go crazy if kept singly or with only a few. Just the way they are. A lone tiger barb in a tank will either die from the stress or cause some massive carnage with the other fish.

There is no way I can put 6 Danio's & 6 Tiger Barbs in this size tank:

I think i'll stick with 6 Danio's...

Musho, you're danios will be fine with your bolivians.

Until the bolivians are full size and hungry 8)
