That said, I'm not sure the solution to "fin-nippers" on the forum is to add more to the shoal to keep aggression between them. I think it's best to keep the tiger barbs off of TFK, as we have some long, flowing fins and gentle fish here.
you can take a fish out of the wild but not the wild out of the fish.with that said what fish dol you want be?
