    Personally, I think 20 tiger barbs in a 29 gallon tank is too many, considering how active they are, and they can get up to 3 inches long.

    +1 - when fish are babies they fit and look nice but you can't go by the old rule "one inch of fish per gallon" if the fish won't stay small & could get aggressive later - plus it's harder to keep water parameters good with that many fish unless you have really good filtration and test often.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    You have a very nice looking planted aquarium - good arrangment and looks to be healthy growth! but I do not see why you have a motorcycle in the tank ... ? .

    Considering how heavy the planting, and if you have a good filteringing system, I'd think your barbs would be ok relative to stocking. Check the water parameters of the tank. If the ammonia and nitrites are zero, and the nitrate level is under 20 ppm, (hopefully lower) then you should be fine.

    If the water remains cloudy, then overfeeding could cause this if you are not vacuuming the gravel after the meals (that is removing food is left behind.) Catfish can't get down into gravel even if you have those. Gravel that is not stired as you vacuum it tends to buildup a lot of food and fish waste. Keep an eye on that issue.
