Woo! So glad he has made a good recovery!

With the Tigers, the only thing I could suggest is perhapse get 5 or 6 more? I know that sounds silly when they are already misbehaving, but Tiger barbs would much rather pick on their own kind and are much better suited to take their own kind of trouble, if you see what I mean......I have a feeling that was as clear as mud..... :wacko:

They do better in larger groups, 7-9 fish, as the aggression is diffused within the group and they leave everything else alone! whew...got it out properly in the end!

Saracen, I had that about barbs before I got them, was hopeing that I could squeek by with 3 :wacko: guess not! While watching them I can tell that there is one that is the deffinate agressor of the three, I have named him "Evil one".

Thanks to everyone for the help and suport.
