Last week, I said I would be buying cories once the BNPs got transferred but then, a typhoon struck, knocking out the power. I made emergency measures to take care of the pond, but I forgot about my tank. So I lost two guppies, which happened to be my favorite ones. I kinda lost interest in the guppies, having lost my favorites, so I'm giving up the remaining 3 for adoption. So I'm searching for a new midwater tankmate for my future cats.
Will a shoal of 6 tiger barbs be compatible with corydoras? From what I've read their preferred temperature and PH levels are quite overlapping. My only uncertainty is that of temperament, since Tiger barbs are semi-agressive towards some other species of fish. Any expereience in keeping the two together?
I wouldn't put these together in a 15g tank. Tiger barbs are less likely (but still may, its their nature) to be rough when kept in large groups of 9 or more, and given their active nature that is too many for a 15g in my view. If you want some colourful shoaling fish, consider any of the rasbora species, or several of the SA tetras would be fine with a group of corydoras.
