"I had 8 Green Tiger Barbs & encountered a tragic event! One morning I awoke to find one missing the fin on its tail. I moved this injured fish to its' own tank. It did not survive. A month or so later I found a different Barb missing it's right fin & the muscle was entirely exposed!! I moved this fish to its' own tank. This fish survived and now has a tiny stump for a fin (quite cute actually). About ANOTHER month later my Plecostomus dorsal fin was attacked & the fin part was chewed away leaving the spines of the fin. I moved this pleco to the tank with the other injured Barb and both are fine and get along well. Now that I have a group of 6 Green Tiger Barbs, I have found no further injuries. The moral of my blurb is that 5 or 6 is probably a good number of fish. 8 may be too many. I had been warned when I purchased the fish not to put them in groups larger than 8 but also not less than 5. I certainly learned a lesson others may want to heed. (p.s. I have a 60 gal tank so it wasn't a space issue)"
