Well the amount of aggression from the tiger barbs is usually related to how many you have. Size doesn't play as much of a factor. If you have a ton of them, they will usually just focus on harassing each other, while just one of them in a tank will most likely try to destroy everything.

Haha well I have 7 so that is likely why they aren't aggressive toward other fish. I don't even notice them aggressive with each other.

I would go with at least 10. I don't think they have a big bio load for their length. Someone correct me I I'm wrong on that.

Your right. Because they are so thin and snake like in body shape they don't have a big bioload

If they are the only bottom dwellers in a 55 gallon i would recommend 10 as that is a large group and along with a sandy area they would exhibit very natural behaviour

I think so. As long as they look similar and are pretty much the same size. Because corydoras julii and corydoras Sterbai will school together.
