i don't recommend putting tiger barbs in a tank smaller than 20 gallons, they are definately a schooling fish, and will nip each other agressively in small numbers. they are best in groups of at least 6. i have three in a 10 gallon tank, and it was a nightmare to get them to cooperate and not try to nip eachother's tails off! if you are desprate for a barb in a small tank, i'de go with one that is less of a schooler- like a cherry barb.
