    Have you considered Madagascar Rainbows? They are smaller, have blues, yellows and reds, are great fish for your tank!

    As far as appisto species... Rotpunkt? Opal Borelli? Agassizii?

    Ooooo, more to look up. Cheers.

    With regard to apistos I was looking at the hardiest species, borrellii or cacacoides (sp?)

    Apisto's as long as they are not wild are relative. Cacatoides is super easy imo - pretty - bulky and flashy . Alassizii is the same but brighter.

    Buddy of mine keeps boesemani in a tank about that size. I'd say it's minimum size. They're a boisterous fish. Good chance they'll send your babrs in a permanent cower.

    Being that the barbs are the nippier of the two fish, I doubt either will cower to each other. Maybe at first they would be cautious of the size difference, but long term, they would cohabitate well.

    Cherry barbs are huge scaredy cats so I think dutchie is right.

    I've gone back to my penguin tetra idea now. Fickle creature!

    Get false penguins. Pretty rare fish and looks very good.

    They are not too rare in the States, almost every LFS stocks them as well as the big box stores, but still a very lovely fish. I love their unusual swiming style.

    In this country real penguins are stocked by almost every shops but false... very hard to find.

    Here in the UK, Thayeria obliqua are never seen (I've certainly never seen them anyway).

    Thayeria boehlkei (false penguins) are very common though.
