New community tank questions
 
Hi everyone i just recently last week decided to change my 55 gallon tank to a community tank. I am not sure if it is called a community tank because it is stocked with semi aggresive fish. I currently have 5 small tiger barbs, 1 small rainbow shark, 1 small bristlenose pleco, 3 otto cats, 3 silver dollars, 8 red eye tetra, 1 small dojo loach, 1 dwarf powder blue gourami. I would like to add more fish to my tank, if it is possible could i add a pair of kribnesis or just one? I would also like to know some other fish that are cool that would go well with my tank? Any info will be appreciated.

Sounds like an aggressive community, which is entirely doable.

Whether the fish is small or not is not important, since fish grow.

I would add 5 more tiger barbs - they do best in a larger school. I would return the dojo, as it is a social fish that needs others. Aside from the tank being a little small for them, when the shark is mature it may not like the dojos.

I think you'd be pretty well stocked - I wouldn't add anything other than more of what you already have.
