Just gotta be careful about tankmates. I had a group of about 10 tiger barbs in with a green Texas cichlid and a salvini. They ignored the cichlids and just sparred amongst themselves. They would have races along the length of the 4 foot tank lol.

Just gotta be careful about tankmates and have them in a large enough group. I had 10 tiger barbs in with a green Texas cichlid and a salvini with no problems. They just sparred amongst themselves and would race back and forth along the length of the 4 foot tank.
