Stocking Question
 
Does anyone have Tiger Barbs together with cherry barbs?

I understand that they may not get along to well?

Hi Busgod, I've never kept the two together but have read that keeping the two can lead to major problems with aggression from the tiger barbs.

Personally, I wouldn't attempt it.

What do you currently have in the tank, and what size is it?

A 4-footer tank with tiger barbs and loaches is far more entertaining than the tigers and cherries together.:wink2:

I can see a tank with a very dark substrate ( black) , tiger barbs and clown loaches. That to me would be very eye catching.

Funny thing I am planning to get some tiger barbs for my tank already containing several loaches.:lol:

thanks everyone I was sure that it would't be a great idea so I did a rethink and now am well stocked :oops:

10 harlequin rasboras
10 cherry barbs
5 zebra loches
3 dwarf guarami
2 pearl guarami
1 bristle nose pleco (L-144a)
1 emperor pleco (L-204

I think I've reached my tanks limits :omg:

Busgod 05-01-2008 01:01 AM

KJB 05-01-2008 01:35 AM

Busgod 05-02-2008 07:39 PM
