    Hey Tom, I actually had 6 gold barbs and 6 cherry barbs in a 29 which upgraded to a 55. The gold barbs I had got very big, about 3-4", they were beauties with their gold color, black marking and spots of red on their fins. If they fit into a tank, I would get them again. That being said I am adding a big school of either the pentazonas or the snakeskin to my 125. I want the Pearls to be the biggest fish in there (centerpiece) otherwise I would add the golden barbs too.

    I also do not think the tigers are a good idea with the pearls. Pearls are very shy and timid despite their size, the danios may be too much for them in the 40-they are a lot more active and could out compete the gouramis for food.

    Tigers are good in a tiger tank with a bottom dweller species. You need a good group of tigers so they are boisterous with each other.
    I was going to do a tiger tank, but changed my mind (again-lol) and am going with congos in a 75.

    I say again because I tent to research what I want to all heck, look for good tankmates and if I see that the tank isn't going to be diverse species wise-I kinda look for fish that are more co-habitable. My Sister is OK with a species only tank, I am a... ooohhh, look at all the fishies-I want... kinda girl.

    Fixed the typo :)

    It's been a week since the OP started the thread, and no other posts than the original

    Let's wait until the OP replies, to offer more suggestions, which have all been great so far

    marcella612 found the best fishkeeping site available for great advice on FW fish...of that, I am certain

    Sorry slap, but I need to give advice on this. Tiger barbs are a great fish if you want lots of movement and color. I would put blue or gold gouramis, not pearls, you can also put green tigers, glo tigers, red eye tetras, blk skirts and a huge variety of other fish. If I wanted a tank of fast moving hardy fish tiger barbs would be one of my first choices.
