Nope... Lol. Not a big enough tank. There are the dwarf varieties like rams, apistos, and keyholes, along with shell dwellers and convicts... Which are more aggressive. Maybe one convict and some tiger barbs instead?

Umm... I would seriously think about moving that betta. You have 2 EXTREMELY nippy fish with a slow moving, long finned fish... It's just not a good combo. could you set up another tank for her? maybe a ten gallon with some more peaceful tank mates?

Your Tiger Barbs should be in a group of at least 8 imo. They are schooling fish and do better with their own kind, in that they get less nippy cos they're too busy in-fighting.
