Several questions on rasboras, whiteclouds, and more!

Okay, I have a 75 gallon tank with 2 moonlight and 2 pearl gouramis, 10 ghost cats, 12 Rabora hets, 1 male and 2 female bettas and 2 siamese (soon to be 3) Algae eaters.

First question: My rasboras, instead of schooling, are spread out across my tank... anyone know why???

Second question: If I got removed my rasboras and put White cloud minnows in my tank would me gouramis eat them? Some "expert" said no but I'm a bit skeptical.

If the white clouds are a "no don't get those" I would love to get some tiger barbs, If i removed the bettas and the Rasboras would the tiger barbs bother the gouramis?

Also, If i did get tiger barbs will the different colors school togeither?

Thanks in advance!

Your rasboras probably feel comfortable in the tank and that is why they are relaxed and not tightly schooling.

I would not add tiger barbs with gouramis, especially Pearls. The tigers are pretty hyper and would nip at their long fins. Pearls are pretty laid back and calm and may be stressed by the tigers.

Sorry, can't help you on the WCMM question.

I would not put white cloud mountain minnows in with gourami mainly because their water parameter requirements are vastly different particularly in temperature but also in pH and hardness. Gourami are soft acidic water fish that need warmth (high 70's into low 80's) whereas white clouds should not have a temperature above the low 70's and they fare better in slightly basic water. Kept too warm they will not be in the best health.

The issue of tiger barbs has already been mentioned and I agree, never with gourami or any slow sedate fish.

One caution on the algae eaters, they get large.
