    I wouldn't do tiger barbs in a 20g. They need a good sized group to help curb aggression and their adult size makes a proper sized group a bit cramped in 20 gallons.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    + 1 to Mommy1 and her comment about Tiger barbs, 20g is to small to house a sufficiant number of them.

    was thinking if it was a species only tank you could get away with it as you could easily get about 12-15 barbs in a 20 gallon long. But then again I was using aqadvisor to look to see how it would work.
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    Kribensis, species only in a 20 long.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    kirbensis I have seen and i think he liked! I am going to drive into anchorage today and see if i can find a 30+ tank for him since it seems the 20g wont be big enough to get the types of fish he likes. He loves angel fish, some cichlids, etc. all of which seem to need a 30g min. If my teenage daughters could get ever finish getting ready...ugh.. lol

    go big or go home!

    j/k but we usually recommend the largest you can easily afford as it gives more stocking options. But for angels usually taller tanks are better than the shorter ones.
    Current tanks:
