tank mates for rhombo barbs
i have a 40 gallon tank with 6 rhombo barbs in it and i'm looking for some good companions. i had a betta fish in there for a few years but he recently died. the betta was aggressive and so i couldn't put anything else in the tank. now that he's gone, i'd like to have a few more fish in there.
any suggestions? thanks in advance!
hello and welcome. :)
how about some corydora catfish for the bottom of the tank ?
Welcome to the forum! I agree, Corys would be a nice addtion and they are so mellow AND funny. Are the barbs the only inhabitants at the moment?
yes the only fish in the tank are the barbs. :-)
any chance of a picture of the tank :)
Yes, we LOVE pictures :-D
this is the tank. it's sort of in a bit of disarray because we just moved.
Yes, but I can see once you get it out of its state of "disarray" it's going to look great. :-)
not looking to bad.
will enjoy watching your tank grow.
thanks guys. i got 6 cories (schwartz's) and they seem to be doing great with the barbs.
of course while i was at the LFS i saw some absolutely stuning diamond tetras and now i wish i had a bigger tank. lol...
i will take some more pictures soon to share the progress. :)
