Are barbs compatible with fish like corys and algae suckers like otto cats?
For my 30 gal I was thinking of maybe just doing a large school of tiger barbs with some oto cats and sterbai or panda corys instead of the community aquarium I was planning.

yep, just slow fish with long fins are in danger

So how do you think about 10 tiger barbs, 4 panda or sterbai corys and 4 oto cats sounds in a 30 gal? Heavily Planted

being heavily planted with good filtration it would work fine.

Cocoa, not quite as crazy as the one on the right but a little more than the one on the left. I am purchasing a single 65 watt compact fixture soon for my tank.
BTW that tank on the right is crazy I have seen it on the other plant forum website.
