My danios will not court each other! They just are not interested! I am wondering what I can do!

I have two Giant Danios in a thirty gallon with other bigger and smaller fish. They constantly and aggressively chase the other fish in the tank. It doesn't seem like playing. It looks like constant pestering.

I've noticed that the statement about the "fin nibbling" from these fish is true. I bought a school of 5 and have recently bought 2 more. I love watching them, they are a blast. However, right away they started nibbling at my angel fish. This has caused some major stress to my angel fish. To add to this statement in here, I recommend having a larger than 15 gallon tank if you want to share the tigar barbs with the community fish that have longer fins and move more slowly. I only have a 10 gallon tank which doesn't give the tiger barbs much room to be preoccupied with each other.

ALL CHINESE ALGAE EATER OWNERS BEWARE! If there is no algae for them to eat they will eat the slime off the other fish in the tank. This will cause the other fish fungal diseases such as hole in the head.

I had one really big Chinese algae eater in my cichlid tank. It was so peaceful until it died a couple of days ago. I got four more little ones and they are so good at cleaning. They are really good fish and I recommend them to anyone.

I have had a tinfoil barb for nine years now. He is now about 20cm. It live with my blood red parrot cichlid which I have also have for nine years. Recently I have placed four bristle nose catfish and a sailfin pleco with them and they are all one big happy family. One month ago I intergrated a new albino tinfoil which is 7cm with no problem what so ever. They are my pride and joy.

I literally just got them (10 minutes at max) in my tank and they are already schooling! I have 2 Leopard Danios, 4 Glowlight Tetras, 2 Paleatus Cories(non-albino), 12 Cardinal Tetras, and now 5 Glowlight Rasboras. And one of them when it first got in the tank thought the Glowlight Tetras were its school!

I have had several throughout the years. I have had good luck with them. I have noticed some agression, but nothing that would hurt my fish. I had all smaller fish too. One tank had Guppies, bettas, neon tetras, corydoras catfish, a red tailed shark, & 2 Algae eaters. The algae eaters did their job & when the algae was low I fed wafers. I fed Shrimp pellets to the corys & I noticed a few times they would eat them. They do grow really fast. I had one grow an inch in a very short time! I think they do better with bigger tanks, but I have had them in 10 gallon tanks before & they lived several years, but didnt get near as big as the others in my bigger tanks did.

We have a 20 gallon tank with 7 longfin tiger barbs, 3 dwarf gouramis, 1 angel fish and 1 pleco. The tiger barbs swim actively in the tank and are not making any harm to our angel and gouramis. During feeding our tiger barbs are very smart at snatching food so that before the other fishes start their meal there will be nothing left. These are the fastest eaters I have seen.
