View Full Version : More barbs, or tetras?

05-20-2010, 12:04 PM
Hi all,

I have a 29 G tank that's been running for about 6 months. I have 6 cherry barbs in it right now. Is there another type of barb that I could add that would be small enough, and also be compatible with the cherry barbs? I've also been thinking about adding some kind of tetra, but I can't decide if I want to do all barbs... Opinions? Thanks!

What else is in the tank?

The only other fish in there is a clown pleco.

I would go with tetras.
An all barb tank would be nice to look at but I think there may be way too many aggression problems.If you had a larger tank it would be easier.

I would not mix barbs. The cherries are the least aggressive of the barb family and I would get more of them and perhaps some tetra's that are on the larger size.

Thanks for the advice; tetras it is! Probably will add like 2 more cherries, and then get some tetras. Thanks again.
