serpae tetra tank mates

What other species can coexist with serpae tetras in a 60 gallon tank? My tank is currently empty. Could albino corys and tiger barbs live with the serpae tetras?

I have 16 serpae, 10 red eye tetras, 2 pictus cats, 1 pearl gourami, 1 Bolivian ram and some zebra danios in my 90 gallon tank. Nobody bothers each other. A very peaceful, active tank

But do you think the tiger barbs and the serpae tetras would get along?

Sorry I completely missed the last part! Yes with the cories and with caution with the tiger barbs. Keep the barbs in a good school of about 8-10, they are very nippy fish. I love the look of them, but I avoid them all together... That's just me tho.

I think that would be better than the tiger barbs. But corys can basically be with any fish so they shouldn't be an issue either way.

I would worry WAY more about the angelfish getting nipped to death.

Both. They're both nippy fish. And a slow moving angelfish is a perfect target.

Rummynose tetras, cardinal tetras, rams, cories, hatchetfish, and many other schooling fish.

Yes for quarantine. Not for any length of time though.
