52 gal flat back hex - adding fishes
 
Hurray....after 5 weeks, my tank is completely cycled. It is a 52 gal flat back hex tank. Pebbles for gravel, some plants (will add 2 or 3 anubias more at the earleist). Have some moss and also boss balls. Ammonia is 0, Nitrite is 0 and Nitrate is less than 5 (less than that color from the chart).

Currently added barbs in there. 4 tiger and 2 green. I am planning to add more tigers in there, like another 6 or so at the very minimum.

What else would do well with tigers? Any suggestions?

pH is 7.6
Temp at 76 to 78
2 Fluval filters each for up to 65 gals and an ugf.

I might add some shrimp (RCS and ghost) too but those arent much of a bioload.

Both your barb species need a school of at least 5 so get more of each. As for what to go with them check the fish profiles second tab from the left a the top

Wait. I thought both tiger and green (and albinos too for that matter) are essentially same species but different morphs. They school together; thats what they are doing now in my tank. All 6 are moving together. Should I really be getting 6 of each? I have no issues in doing that though. Since I didnt want to add a lotta fish at the same time, I got 4 of tiger and 2 of green.
