No problem inga. By rights I should probably have moved your post out to a new thread, I usually do when I see this, but it is getting late in the evening here and I was (still am) anxious to get to my supper.

Anyway, I am very concerned over advice like that you were given, and wanted to nip that issue in the bud so you won't be coming to us later for help with dying fish as a result.

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).
