"It pays to study on this species before buying. I had 5 barbs (3 tiger and 2 albino) in a 40 gallon tank with a red tail shark and a rainbow shark. They did not come to agreement on which was dominant (possibly because of the large tank size) and now I currently have 1 tiger barb. When my dominant tiger barb killed the others I realized that the faster sharks didn't get bothered so I replaced them with other species. I found clown loaches to be an excellent companion to the barb and my 2 loaches have thrived (they do not appear to be aggressive but really control the tank). In addition I added 2 silver dollars which have become very large and the 1 tiger barb cannot "bully" them as a single barb. The loaches actually have to keep the silver dollars in check which I didn't believe at first to be an aggressive species. I now have a 40 gallon tank that seems in harmony with its 9 residents including 2 algae eaters. Having lots of vegetation and some rocky hiding places also helps and they have all found their areas. I do not believe that a larger school of barbs is the answer. I like 1 with the 2 loaches and it has been stable for about 1 year."
