I've now heard 3 different numbers from 3 different sources on how many tiger barbs I need.
The guy at the fish store said at least 3. So I got 3.
An article on the net says 6.
Now you are saying at least 8.
If you need 8 tiger barbs to not bother other fish, then that means 8 tiger barbs at full size (8 x 3") = 24" applied to the general rule (1" of fish per gallon) means that having tiger barbs and other fish in the same aquarium requires at least 24 gallons MINIMUM not counting the space for the other fish. Is this true?
Nobody has less than 8 tiger barbs with other fish?
Everyone that have tiger barbs with other fish have a tank size greater than 24 gallons?
