Arrow aquarium light

how many hours a day should i keep the light on in my tank? my grandmother brought up the topic when she was over. i'm a little worried about algae growing in the tank. And i'm getting new fish on sunday. i planning on 2 albino tiger barbs, and an opaline gourami. should i get a boy or a girl one cuz i alredy have a blue gourami. will they get along? P.S. i already have 5 fish (4 tiger barbs, 1 blue gourami), would it be over stoking if i got 3 more fish? -NoaDon12-

Overstocking your tank or not with the listed fish would depend on: What size tank do you have there?

For the lights run them 9-10hrs/day. Easiest is to just set them on a timer so its regular.

I'd make a decimation between either the 2nd Gourami OR the 2 more Albino's. But I'd not get both ontop of what you have. You gotta consider the Gourami's adult size of 5"...

how fast do they grow? cuz my plan was to get those fish for now, and get a bigger tank in the summer, or when they're too big for the one i have now

Well if you're planning on upgrading to like a 30-45g this summer then yea you can house them in there for now.
