Here is a picture of my 4 new tiger barbs and 4 new albino barbs enjoying my tank. I was going to put 4 more green tiger barbs in but these 8 really fill up the tank.Might just leave the room for them to grow. Picture isn't very good but I will try and get a better one later. I plan on adding 1 peppermint pleco later.

The tank setup is nice! I'm sure they are happy in there. By the way what size tank is it?

Thanks country boy,they seem to be adjusting pretty well to the new surrounding. They have been in the tank for about 24 hours now and are eating well and already rush the front of the tank for more food when I approach. It is a 46 gallon bow front.

All seem to have adjusted well and absolutely love chasing each other through the caves and holes in the rocks and log. I was doing a water change today and it was difficult to keep these guys from swimming up the siphon tube. Also I had a pretty big patch of algae on the log which has disappeared,do tiger barbs eat algae? they also seem to pick at the substrate alot for food. It seems like they will help keep the tank clean.

Thanks for the kind words about my tank everyone.These guys are so active tearing around the aquarium at high speed I have decided to keep it a single species tank, as they would drive anything else crazy. I am considering adding 4 more tiger barbs and leaving it at that. Just have to decide which color variant. The albino tiger and normal tiger school together but definitely have a preference for there own color variant so I am thinking off adding 2 albino and 2 tiger to the mix.
