Tiger barbs STATS needed please >

Do tiger barba often reach thier mav size of 3"? In a large tank well a 50g would 6 be good enough to
make them feel secure and what level do they swim ?

I would guess three inches is on the high side. None of mine are that big and I dont think I have ever seen one that big.

I think 6 would work, the bigger the group the better. They will be less likely to bother the other fish, more concerned with eachother and settig up their own pecking order.

Mine swim at all levels, but mostly middle.
