Hello, I currently have just one Arulius Barb and a new big tank to fill. Other than more Arulius Barbs I was wondering what other barbs or types of fish you would recommend putting in the tank?

Would the Arulius Barbs do better with Tiger Barbs, Cherry Barbs, or are all types of barbs pretty much compatible with all other types of Barbs? :fish5:

Hoping for plenty of suggestions. Thanks for you help

I just found something interesting in my tank I recently bought a roseline shark (denison barb) which is a large beautiful barb and I have several cherry barbs in there with it and they seem to enjoy following it around. It looks rather cool, just thought id throw that out there

Hello, thank you for the advice. Well I starte cycling my new tank with Rosey Barbs. I got just three. I then added the Arulius Barb to see how it would do. The Rosey's don't school all that much but when they do the Arulius Barb joins right in. They seem to love playing together. The larger Arulius Barb even seems to break up the nearly constant chasing that occurs between the larger Rosey and the two smaller ones. I know Arulius Barbs are schoolers but they get fairly large for a tank the size I have. It seems to be enjoying itself just fine with the Rosey's and likes having more room to swim around.
