I wanted to see if I could keep my Tiger Barbs (2.5-3 in; 6) in a 55 gal tank w/ a 3-3.5 in Firemouth, while adding a pair of Convicts or Green Terrors. I also have 4 Corydoras (peppered) and 1 common Pleco. Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am new to Cichlid keeping. THANKS :unsure:

Tiger barbs are tropical fish and are not suppose to be mixed with cichlids. I had a few of them which my German Red ate. I do have clown loaches and a pleco which seem to be fine in the tank though. Hope that helps.

I don't know much about New World cichlids, but I think its safe to say you shouldn't house your cories in the same tank. I don't know about the Tiger barbs, I hear about a lot of people trying them out as target fish in their S/C American tanks but I would think something like convicts would pick them off. Pleco should be fine, almost everyone has one in their tank.

 

Someone else will have to help you with the convict/GT/Firemouth compatability.
