I got a sailfin plecostomus and he fit in well. The barbs are still very small so they leave the pleco alone. He can also raise his fin to look bigger and scare them away.musho3210 said:well im pretty sure the ghost shrimp is fine but the pleco might have some problems, are you going to keep those three tiger barbs or get more? if you have 6+ they will be less agressive towards other fish.
I doubt they'll be able to fend the tigers. Sailfins have extraordinarily large fins and in this case, it makes them prone to being nipped. Sorry but I disagree with your suggestion over this combo.mr.bojangles said:if u dont mind them mollies would work ... sailfins get big and wouldnt be bothered ... they would probly fight back. and if ur worried about them breeding im sure tigers would finish off the babies before they even got a chance to run.
I know it's not really for my benefit, but yes please, photos!!!willow said:pffhhh(i think that's how you do it :lol: )
tigers.........more like pussy cats.
but yeah in being serious,i have seen the way they
attack a prawn(from tesco) and they are relentless !!!

i have got Four in with the barbs,they started off small
and now the biggest is around 3 1/12 inches long,
