My new barbs

The tank I set up in March is finally cycled and I got 3 green moss barbs today. I'll add 3 more next week so as not to get an ammonia surge.

hi there
nice barbs,hope they get on ok.
are you going to stay with just moss green,
or mix the group with striped tigers ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm just sticking with the moss barbs, I don't really like the tigers. I did see some albino tigers (a nice pink and white colour) at the aquarium shop yesterday that were quite tempting but I'll stick with the mossies!

New fish are so exciting... Especially in a tank that is not fully stocked... :P
