Nice looking tank. I'm sure they'll love that tank setup.

For example. [img ]http://hostmypicture. com/images/img2014011.jpg[/img ]

I added spaces inside of the brackets to get them to show up on here.

Glass cats are tricky to feed right and are very timid. Tiger barbs are hardy and a favorite but must be kept in groups of five or better yet ten. The guppies are hardy for some people but I have no luck with them, and they will likely get torn up by the barbs.

Stop by my work sometime and I'll give you a tour around the aquatics department and show you what I would suggest. Its best to pick out your favorite fish first and then see what will get along with it. That way you're not as likely to mix incompatible fish together

Cal.. a personal bias here regarding Tiger Barbs.  They were one of the 1st fish I kept in a community tank back in the early 70's... And have never had them again!  My experience, and their reputation, is that they are fin-nippers!  Will harass other fish to the point of exhaustion and death... My 2 cents.  Bill

I have kept tiger barbs before. If I recall correctly I had about 22 in a 40 gallon planted tank. I kept them with sarpae tetra, cherry barb, gold ram, hatched fish but couldn't keep guppies, bettas and veil angels. A lot of the fish can kept but depends on their temperment, number of barbs and how big is the tank. Ignore me talking.....lol..

This is a very common scenario when there's only a few tiger barbs in the tank. They are fin nippers. The reason is that they are a shoaling fish and the dominant fish are always trying to assert their dominance. If there's no other barbs to fight with, then they will start to compete with the other fish. Most other fish are not fast enough or tough enough to handle the rough abuse and end up getting their finds nipped. Having a single male with multiple females is also not advised because the male with fight with other fish. Have atleast two males and twice as many females. Best kept in groups of ten or more.

Amp...oddly enough, before sharing your advice of 10 or more, I'd been talking with Ira about my TB bias.. .and he came up with your same advice... Too coincidental... you two talking behind closed doors? Bill  Very Happy
