Smile Hey, there!

Hi, everyone! Having gotten a lot of useful information on here I decided that it was finally time to get an account. I came here to help my 2 tiger barbs who I think are kind of sick. I have a 36 gal tank with some fish in it....(info at the bottom some plastic plants and a coral in the middle with a treasure box bubbler.

36 Gallon

3 balloon mollies
1 dalmation molly
2 tiger barbs
2 neon tetras
2 skirt tetras
2 mini red tetras
3 guppies

to AA!

Your tetras and barbs all need to be in schools, otherwise they will get more aggressive and more prone to disease due to stress.

I was thinking about getting some other tetras...should I make a group of 3-4? Would it crowd my tank though?

I would fill out all your tetra schools to six or seven, and you would be perfectly stocked IMO.
