Debating on getting new fish, or re homing my 3 African to it. My wife also has 3 green tiger barbs, can they go with the Africans? any suggestions as to tank mates?

If it were me id move them to the 55 and you could add more. As for the barbs with africans the barbs would become lunch at some point.

What are the Africans you currently have? +1 on moving them to the 55 though as this is typically the smallest tank size recommended for most African cichlids. Once we know what kinds you have we can discuss tankmates and #s
