what size is your tank? Are these fish going in with the gouramis you are getting because that is not a good mix. Barbs are schooling fish and like to have 6 of their own species minimum. So 5 more green tigers or none if you are putting them with the gourami.

ok in that case, I would not get anymore green tiger barbs in the 10g. It is pretty close if not fully stocked already. I would not put the green tigers in with the gouramis either. I guess you are at a stand still unless you move some of the others in with the gouramis. The corys could go over plus some more of them.(pumpkin)

It sounds like you need a few more corys!

I suggest you return the tiger barb. He/she will live a very unhappy life as he needs a school of tiger barbs but an adequete school cannot fit in a 10g.

Sorry,but I agree with Tolley.
Besides the fact that he will outgrow the tank,the stress from being in such a small tank might kill him.:11:
