I have a tank with mollies, platies, giant danios, a dwarf gourami and marble hatchetfish, do you think I could put in some tiger barbs with them?
30 gallon-2 black mollies, 1 red wag platy, 1 dwarf gourami, 2 giant danios, 3 marble hatchets
125 gallon- 1 black ghost knife, 1 senegal bichir, 1 blue jack dempsey, 1 needle nose gar, 1 red tailed shark
Your dwarf gourami is the likeliest victim of their fin nipping habits. Pentazona barbs are your better options. They look a bit like tiger barbs but aren't as nippy as the tigers.

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.

i would agree, tiger barbs are not the best choice. they need a large area to swim, and lots of buddies (some say 6 is good, but the more, the better). most other barbs are peaceful though. i like cherry barbs for my peaceful tank, they never fight.
