Thanks for the luck. I think for now I'll just stick with platies and mollies. They seems peaceful enough. Sure one of my platies can be a little territorial now and then but it's only when the others get too close and she feels crowded. This little tiger barb was seeking out the others in their hiding places and going after them. Seeing them so stressed out was getting me stressed as strange as that is. So peaceful community fish seem to be the ones for me.

it will stress you out because you care :)
that's why you're doing the right thing.
tiger barbs are funny things at the best of times,somtimes you can
get some and they are like kittens,other times they may as well be Tigers lol
you could always look to keep them aagin if you get the chance of another big tank.

I am so happy that you are making the right decision for your fish. I hope they can each be re-homed into a larger tank. Once they have plenty of room and a large enough group, they are quite comical fish and fun to keep. The aggression that you witnessed is most likely due to inappropriate living conditions. Maybe some day when you get a larger tank, you can try them again.

My Tiger Barbs keep me entertained for hours watching them swim around the tank chasing each other. In the group, the chasing is more fun loving play fighting like a group of young boys running about. They all get along fine, they just can't help but push and shove a little ha ha They don't bother my Platys at all. In fact, sometimes, my Platys seem to school with them a bit. If the Platys end up having babies, I will have to let you know how that goes.
