Need help stocking my 50 gallon

Right now I have:

6 tiger barbs 1"
1 Pleco 3"
1 Albino Catfish 1"
3 Platty 1 1/2"
1 Platty 2 1/2"

I know the tigers are 'semi' aggressive and the plattys might be in danger...but the large platty and 6 barbs have been happy for the past ~ 3 months. Yesterday we got 3 small platty, the pleco, and albinao cat.

I want 'pretty' colorfulish fish...I like schooling fish.


Previous our tank(before the accident):

1 Red tail shark 3"
3 Platty 1 1/2"
5 tiger barb 1 3/4"
5 green tiger barb 1 3/4"
1 Pleco 3"
1 Albino Cat 1 1/2"
3 (small fish idk ...minnow-ish lol) 1 1/2"

you could try some gold barbs, they are schooling fish and very colorful. dwarf gouramis would also add some color to your tank. i would just keep an eye on the tiger barbs and make sure they dont bully him. i've heard mixed results from people who have kept them together but for the most part if you have a big enough school they wont other the gourami or your other fish. and maybe a school of rummynose or cardinal tetras.

I like the rummy nose, not so much the gold tetra or cardinal.


I was thinking of getting either a rainbow or red tail shark...the tank had a red tail orginially but it died before i even got the tank set up. (our friend gave it to us bc they were moving)

I got my first two rainbow sharks yesterday and i've already fallen in love with them, they just chase eachother around the entire tank but like hanging out on my driftwood!
