I'd like to think that our forum has a little more governance and civility than a totally natural ecological system or even an artificial slice of nature (as in our fish tanks) but nonetheless this observation does go to show a few things: 1) that our fish tanks are capable of doing a decent job of mirroring the complex interactions found in the wild and 2) that we, as people, aren't all that far removed from the pets we keep and their cousins in nature.

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.

hahahaha! SO true!!!

I have no idea what type of fish I am.......this has really got me thinking now! lol Something that is very laid back and will put up with a lot, but I can bite back if someone hassles me too much.....so some sort of cichlid, I'm thinking.
