View Full Version : Bad and good new's about my tiger's

We'll let's just say they turned into terror's of my tank. They killed 2 of my rummynose tetra's and were trying to get a 3rd. So I talked to my LFS where I got them and he said he'll take them back. So once there I got 2 more rummynose's to replace my dead one's and he also threw in 2 Dwarf red groumi's, free of charge. So now I have no more hostile fish in my tank. I thought it was my cherry barb doing the damage to my tetra's but upon further investigation it was not. Them tiger's would round up the tetra's in the corner of the tank and just terrorize them.

Tiger barbs can be aggressive I find particularly when kept in small schools. They largely keep to themselves when kept in larger schools.

I had a small school of 6 when I first stocked my tank and they went after everybody, especially my gold gourami's who at the time were 3 times bigger than the tigers.
