I put six cherry barbs in my tank when I started. They and I have been through hell and they are still standing tall.
They have not messed with any of the following: Rainbowfish (deceased), german rams (deceased) Celestial Pearl Danios (real tiny) and not much bigger porkshop rasboras. In fact the CPDs and the Porkers tend to school for short periods of time with the cherry barbs. They did not interact at all with two transient gold gouramis, either. And ignore my cories as well.
You might get a bad batch, but from my very limited experience, they are champs and true community fish.
In a month, pretty every conceivable thing has gone wrong, but the cherry barbs have shown no aggression.
They are my heros.
