Barb Bullying!
 
Hi, there is a problem between my 4 tiger barbs and 3 new albino cories.

The cories mind their buisness at the bottom of the tank but every little while they are getting picked on by 1 or 2 of the tiger barbs. I also have 3 danios but they are very well mannered.

When the barbs nip them, the cories freak out and zoom all over the tank before returning to the bottom, where this repeats all over again every so often.

Should I be concerned or is this normal??

Thanks,

Dave

What size tank are they in? Adding more barbs may help cut down on the aggression towards the cories. They tend to do better in groups of 6 or more. It evens out the aggression.

They are in a new 29 gallon
