2 9'' tinfoil barbs
2 convicts. male 3 1/2'' female 2 1/2''
4 babie cons from the 2 above 1/2'' -1''
4 tiger barbs very small
55 gl
magnum 350 and 330 bio wheel
the reason i ask is because i have a fish tank at work that im going to take out .and the fish in side have no home. there are 2 1 '' tinfoil barbs in it. if i took them home then it would be only for a month or so. tell i could find them a home. now will this have an effect on my tank? the 2 9'' guys are going to my friends 125 gl. so no flaming.

YEAH THOSE ARE TWO BIG FISH FOR A MEDIUM SIZED TANK. IMO. ARE YOU TAKIN OUT YOUR 9" TINFOIL BARBS? im CONFUSED, BUT IF YOU TAKE OUT THE HUGE BARBS THEN THE TANK WOULDN'T BE OVERSTOCKED.

ya the big guys will be taken out. but not for awhile.at least 4 weeks. question though. so my tank is over stocked now with out the 2 1'' barbs?or it will be if i put them in. because i have no where to put these guys. unless i buy a bigger tank. will the 2 1'' barbs be ok for a month?

the littlefish are fine its just the big fish but if your gettin rid of them in 4 weeks, it sohuld be fine until them, and you can add the 2 1" barbs now.
