Cool deal. Don't be disheartened but tux nitrite bacteria usually take longer than the ammonia ones. Just be prepared to wait it out. Patience is key

I am also new to aquarium advice, I personally thibk a 16 gallon would be perfect for tiger barbs and a couple of other fish maybe!

How many fish though ? The tank is 16 uk gallons which = 19.25 US gallons. The tank is not a long tank but a portrait tank.

Here is a link for one.

I really like kribensis, but understand they can be aggressive. Still searching for a good community tank combination.

I'll try again original post didn't come up.

The tank is a Portrait tank ( a biorb life) which is 19.2 US gallons or 16 Uk gallons.

Would like some nice community fish.

Did like the look if kribensis ? But I hear they can be aggressive. Like most barbs. Small and colourful would be nice,

Thanks for the incoming advice.
