I don't think it'd be overstocking, but I think they'd get eaten unless you were able to get some that were adult size already, but even then I'd say the chances of Capone trying to eat them (and possibly succeeding due to their shape) would be pretty high.

6ft tank or 5ft? If a 6ft I would go w/ 2 TF barbs....they get big enough so they won't get eaten...I have 2 in a 125 w/ my Jag. if you can find T-Barbs, they get very large also.

If a 5ft, I would go w/ SD's.

Tiger barbs will be food.

Tank looks great Frank. I dunno about more fish, try to imagine Capone well over a foot long, Dory at 8ins.. space not exactly plentiful.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

I was under the assumption the metae get around 7.
Either way capone pretty much leaves the hrp alone but has dory trapt on the rigj side of the tank.

Six......but that comes w/ the caveat that you are now stocked well beyond capacity & will have to do 2X weekly WC's.

Rainbows will be a very expensive food item for Capone. :evil:

Ha, yes I was about to write the same thing. I think rainbows max out at 3 inches, so in the category of Giant Danios and my 5-6" O made quick work of a couple of those. A psycho like Capone would make short work of them I'd wager.
