So I have an opportunity to add some fish to my tank today... like in the next 2-3 hours. I currently have:
1 female kribensis
6 tiger barbs
My options of fish to add are one of:
6 odessa barbs;
3-4 corydoras julii
I'm rather stumped. At first I wanted to add one male Kribensis but I am scared of what it would do to my tank if the pair decides to mate and breed. Not only would I end up with way more fish than I want but the kribs may start chasing everything in sight.
Tank is a 32G, planted.
I'd go with the cories, but maybe more like 5 of them, as they prefer to be in groups. How are your Tigers doing with the Cardinals? I tried Cardinals with my Odessa's with some very poor results.
The tiger barbs were the very first group of fish i added to the tank over a year ago and they were in a large enough group back then that they left the other fish mostly alone. I then added the female kribensis and when the barbs started trying to nip at her... she showed them who was the boss around! :) It's been a relatively peaceful tank since.
+ one for the cory's. If source of fish can be trusted, fine. Otherwise Quarantine the cory's.
+1 for the cories.
