Im definitely a beginner compared to the rest of the people on this board but I was wondering if there was any input on my barb tank concept.
I want to have my own fish tank at my house and it should be the kind that I can put in the living room as a center showpiece and so I want to go for...
So I have 5 tiger barbs, 3 red minor tetra & 1 rainbow shark.
I DID have a common pleco and he was doing great! I had him for a few weeks when something strange happened.
I stayed with a friend for three days but came home during the day once or twice to check on my fish and feed them.
so i was thinking about starting a tank with barbs since i am very interested in them.
i want a mix of all the barbs, tiger, cherry, rosy, green tiger, and albino tiger
if i have one of each so 5 barbs what size tank should i get
also do they like planted tanks or not, what do they eat...
