What species are your barbs and catfish? What size is the tank? Any other fish in it?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

If you have a large enough tank so that fish are not crowded, I see no problem with catfish and barbs. Barbs are not fond of nipping the fins of fish that poke back! :)

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
