lol so many ppl stealing this post. i think byron has already answered your question inga in the previous statments. i say barbs should not be kept in under a 30gallon (and that is when they are by themselves) i would say 50 gallons for a commmunity tank and 100 gallons for more aggresive fish.
Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
I have twelve gold barbs in two tanks. They can be a teensy bit aggressive towards their own (nothing bad, just occasional short chases), but I have not seen them go after other species (I have them with kuhli loaches, java loaches, SAEs, and neon tetras). The only problem I have with them is that they are giant pigs and will hog all the food (poor little neons have to subsist on the barbs' table scraps).
