Hello fellow fishkeepers!
Just found your great site and wanted to say hello to 'the community'.
I have browsed through here and already saw some great tips.
I have a freshwater tank with 1 Zebra Danio, 2 Tiger Barbs, 3 Black Widows, 1 Pleco, 3 Clown Loaches, 1 Rainbow fish
8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.
Hey there and Welcome! Im new here too, but not new to the hobby at all. I think youll find this to be a great community, and the folks here are wonderful, and very friendly and helpful! Im definately glad I found this place and plan on sticking around for a long time!
What size tank do you have? If you have room, I would add about 4 more of the Danio's, since they thrive in schools. You can see what I got so far, in my sig. Welcome and ENJOY!!!!

Zebra danios should be kept in schools, tiger barbs should be kept in schools, black widows should be in schools (and they may get attacked by the barbs), if the pleco is a common one then he needs at least a 75gal tank, and the clown loaches get big and should have at least a 55gal tank for a school of them, the rainbowfish is fine on his own, but im afraid the barbs may end up attacking him as well.
Keeping fish is a great, fun hobby, but it does take work, lol. Also you have to learn about the different types of fish and what can and cannot go together. We are all here to help you with any questions you may have.
