    I wouldn't keep the barbs, or the yellow lab in a community setup - yes the Kribs can be ok, but wtach the space if you have a breeding pair as several peeps I know have had communitys wiped out at breeding time (and that is most of the time) with by the Kribs, they take ove a part of the tank and will not let anything into the territory that they have choosen, Corys usually suffer the worst at the hands of breeding Kribs in the community tank.

    A general rule for stocking is 1" of adult fish size per gallon of water, although I know that a well maintained and clean tank can cope with a little more depending on the type of fish, for example a pleco of the same size as a guppy would equate to more fish space used as plecos are messy fish (no dissrespect to the little blighters - I love em), but they are classed as more fish per inch thena guppy or tetra of the same size.

    You can get really bogged down with all the do's and don'ts and of course everyone has their own 2 pennies worth of info and sometimes it can be conflicting.

    Remember to add slowly, whatever fish you chose, no more then 1 or 2 a week, give the tank time to settle in between and keep an eye on water stats.

    POs, if you really want to have a type of barb, the Cherry barb is great in the community setup - I have 5 of the little darlings (try not to have less then 3 as they like to shoal and are very nice when they do), and they get along great with everyone else :) Sadly I lost my female Krib, but she was cool on her own too :)

    Cherry barbs are as Corycat says a good choice for a barb. Just wanted to add that it is best to have more females than males when keeping cherry barbs.
