Does anyone have some experience with Tiger Barbs? I think it would be cool to have 5 or 6, but I don't want a Tiger Barb only tank. Any recommendations? I need to keep in mind that I have live plants and don't want them torn up either.

Also, I added some Cabomba and some crypts. I was worried about the Cabomba, but it's looking really well. Cool to see it close up and open up with the lights.

I'll just add, my tank has not cycled yet so I won't be adding fish until it does!
