Have seen Tinfoil barbs approach ten inches long when full grown.(will be big load on 55 gal)
They are very active, and can easily intimidate and outcompete other fishes at feeding time.

A Buddy of mine,,a friend of mine, Blah ,blah,blah.
Heard it all before,Forums are littered with such statement's which hold little value with regards to well being of fish.Adult Tin foils, will barely be able to turn around in 55 gal,prolly become stunted, and more than likely will beat themselves senseless running into the ends of the tank as they grow larger, due to lack of swimming room.
Let me see if I can guess the most often heard next response.."Well I'll get a bigger tank when I need to." or.".I'll take em to fish store when they get too big",or,,"I'll give em to a friend who has a bigger tank."
Many species of fishes can be kept in smaller tanks when small, but they have a troubling habit of not remaining small if proper care is provided.
Best to plan tank's around adult size of fish from the outset, or leave the fish for those who have proper enviornments for adult fish.
It's your tank, you can/will do what you like,, my thought's are with other's who may read theses post's long after I'm worm food.

alright im done of this stupid forum. all you ppl do is bash everyone for how we have our fish and tank set ups. if you are so concerned with having fish be in their natural habbitats and this that and the other thing, why the hell did you guys buy fish and store them in a captive tank. why not go set them free. get the **** over it

A group of five Tinfoil Barb in a 55g are not healthy, plain and simple. And they will not live their normal lifespan. The level of stress being inflicted on those fish is considerable and will take a toll. There is the physical space issue and the water condition due to that. Both will continue to debilitate these fish. It is a fact of science that you can refuse to believe but it will be at the peril of the fish and your success.

All of us on this forum have the right to our own views and opinions. But when those are clearly contrary to fact, they cannot and should not go unchallenged.

Read the blue paragraph in my signature. Each of us has the responsibility as an aquarist to provide for the fishes' needs. Anything less is irresponsible and cruel to the fish.

The truth is still the truth even if no one believes it.

I was kinda happy to see someone on here that lived only 40 minuets away, but anyway the cities is a good place for fish keeping and there are a number of very knowledgeable shops if you know where to go. I agree with everything Bryon and 1077 have said and wish you luck with your tank. This forum has given you advice which you seem to not want so there is not much we can help with there.

Is no such thing as Natural enviornment in glass box of water.
Is why it is so important to do the BEST we can by the fishes we keep, which includes providing proper amount of room, which aids in water quality, and lessen's stress from being confined in said glass box of water.
Any research at all,,, will benefit the fishes and the hobbyist as well.
Weren't no internet when I began keeping fishes, and I killed untold number's out of ignorance and stubborness.
Was not very enjoyable for me,or the fishes I'm sure.
Plenty of info available these day's ,ignorance is no excuse anymore,only leaves stubborness and or lack of caring .
