Hello everyone

Well i live in California. And I've been in the hobby for quite a while now but for some years i had a tank with one mean cichlid, so now i decided to change things up and do a planted tank. My tank is a 120 gal. I think, and i have 11 tiger barbs, 2 yoyo loaches, 6 neon tetras, 2 gouramies,1 clown loach, 4 sword tails, and 4 hatchet fish ohhh and 2 siamese algea eaters. I also have an 18 gal. With red cherry shrimps.

Thanks everyone, and i hope to get some good information on this site

Welcome to the forum, Chileno. Do you ever have problems with your tiger barbs chasing after your sword tails?

Actually the first day the tigers were all over the male sword tail. i thought he was gonna die, but after that nothing, they left him alone. i think is because i have a big school of tigers, they are always together and dont mess with any other fish at all

Yeah, having a nice school like that helps.

A huge school of neon tetras is beautiful. A friend of mine has a 150 gallon. He has about 125 neon tetras in there. Sometimes they all swim in unison, its just one giant wall of color, almost mesmerizing.

Are they being bullied by your other fish? What's your stock?

Hmmm, not sure what is going on. And the ones that get separated from the school look healthy and not nibbled on?
