if u dont mind them mollies would work ... sailfins get big and wouldnt be bothered ... they would probly fight back. and if ur worried about them breeding im sure tigers would finish off the babies before they even got a chance to run.

I doubt they'll be able to fend the tigers. Sailfins have extraordinarily large fins and in this case, it makes them prone to being nipped. Sorry but I disagree with your suggestion over this combo.

hi
just my two pennies worth.
i've got Tiger barbs,albino T barbs,moss green T barbs, 5 spot banded barbs,
odessa barbs,YoYo loaches,and albino corys,
they are all living happily along side two little
bristlenosed catfish.
never had(touch wood) a problem,if the barbs get a little
close at feeding time to the waffers,then the bristlies,
flair out the side cheeks,and spread the dorsal fin,
and the barbs shove off.
:)

About the Ghost Shrimp...

I love Ghost Shrimp. I recently got a very large one and put it in my tank, thinking it was large enough to not be bothered.

I added 6 tiger barbs, and the Ghost Shrimp was gone in less than a week. And I unfortunately stumbled onto them doing it in the process. It was pitiful and horrible to watch. There was nothing left of the shrimp.

So yeah, definitely keep that in mind. I would get another Ghost Shrimp again though.

Always thought it would be interesting to do a tank with Tiger Barbs and Skunk Loaches and a couple of CAEs. It would be a vortex of mean.
