Tiger Barb and Black Widow Tetra
 
Hi All,

Just have a question.

Have currently 6 Tiger Barbs and thinking of adding new fish. Will these fish be compatible with Black Widow Tetra ??? Just curious ??? Or should I stick with Tiger Barbs and just add other barbs ???


Thanks, the help here has been great :)

Hmmmm .... well the problem my mother in law had with adding a tetra to a tank of barbs was that the barbs attacked and killed it as a group :/ ... so i would be very catious x

Depends upon the tank size. Tiger Barb are not good community fish (they are nippy and can vary in aggression) and are best on their own in a larger group (8+). In tanks over 30 gallons they can be combined with other fish if carefully chosen. You can read more in our profile, click on the shaded name.
