    Any Barb kings online.
    Seeing the the discus passed this weekend, I am starting doing a bit of reading on the Barbs.

    I have a 250L tank, planted community tank. Corry's, few Neon's, Cherry barbs, Elepant Fish, One Clown and a few bottom dwellers.

    Would like to introduce 10 Green Barbs and about 8 - 10 Tigers to the tank. What should I look out far. Bad idea? Good idea? Need to know before I make a mistake.

    The more tiger barbs in a tank the better.

    I also started with barbs...Traded in my Malawis for 7 clown loaches & 10 tiger barbs in my 4 ft for now...They do seem a bit shy & I am also wondering if I can add another 10 brabs @The BARB King ?
