Tiger Barbs

Post by Tyharb on Wed Oct 19, 2016 11:17 am

I recently picked up 6 tiger barbs. I have got some black fin tetras and neon tetras in my 40 gallon tank. The lady at the pet store told me the neons would die but, I put the tigers in and its been a day or so an my neons havent died and my blackfin tetra has just joined into the school of tigers. Anyone had neon tetras die from tiger barbs?

Tiger barbs like water with a good flow. They can be nippy, and since they grow way larger than neons, there could be problems. But if you have a strong water flow, that can be less of a problem.
Just don't let the numbers fall.
And live plants will help tremendously to give the neons cover. They aren't species I would mix due to size, levels of aggression and water needs, but once it's done, it may not turn out badly.
