Thanks Kate! :)

I want to get my Platies and Zebra Danio out, bu they are sneaky little fishies...

Definately getting a RTBS and 2 more Tiger Babs next time I go. I can't beleive how close they all stay together.

Any thoughts on a Peacock Eel or Floating plants?

I was bored, so I decided to make them myself.

News: One of my Tiger Barbs has now been chasing and nipping everyone in the tank unfortunately. Im going to have to get 2 more soon.

Next stop at LFS = 2 Tiger Barbs, and RTBS. After that is a Peacock Eel.

I have 5 ATM. I didn't want to buy anymore than that since they are the first fish in the my tank since the cycle.

Okay. Just keep a close eye on them for fin nipping. I had a group of 9 tiger barbs a couple of years back and had to rehome them eventually because they were ripping my other fishes fins to shreds.

I'm not meaning to alarm you; some people keep them sucessfully, but just keep a close eye on them. There's supposed to be less prone to nipping other fish if kept in a larger group.
