I had 6 tigers in with my JD and female salvini and now I'm down to 2. A couple did get sick and die but a couple were murdered. Not sure if it was the JD or the sal though.

In a 110 gallon tank, that still isn't going to work.
You are right. Larger tank would be needed within a year to house them. As mentioned,, I would if I felt the need for dithers, go with the smaller .cheaper,Barbs.

I think the danios might do better than the tigers. They're a bit bigger, are usually sold larger in the first place, seem faster (but who's really pulling out the radar gun for their fish?) and are generally cheaper. That, and they tend to stay closer to the surface than the tigers.
