Anyone have a Tee Barb in their tank?
 
I saw one in the LFS store today and really liked the looks of him. He seemed big to put in my community (he was about 2.5"). Do you think he (I think "he") would work? See my tank blurb below.

Anyone know these Tees to be aggressive toward smaller fish like Cardinal Tetras? :?

Thanks.

Did you mean this one? If so, being large, they can cause a big dent on your smaller fish population. No can do. Large and small fish do not mix especially when big fish can be too intimidating.

P.S. 38 liters on info is still too small for a single barb but from my understanding, it serves only as a rule for larger tank sizes.
