Greetings, I've been browsing and posting on aquariumadvice.com for a couple months now, and I finally decided to seek out a local club and here I am.

I have a 55 gal freshwater with:

14 tiger barbs
1 pink kissing gourami
1 rainbow shark
1 BN pleco

Look forward to getting to a meeting!

Thanks for joining us, its good to have you! Would love to see pics of your setup.

How long have you had that tank established and how are the fish interacting. I had 12 tiger barbs with an opaline gourami, a rainbow shark, and some cories at one point and those barbs were a gang of thugs in that tank who harrassed everything except the gourami, the gourami bullied them Smile

Over time I have to re-think my setup.

I'm so glad you found us, and welcome!

I used to be a mod over at Aquarium Advice for quite a few years (I may be "mod emeritus" now, lol!) and there used to be quite a few Virginia members, but not sure these days.

I look forward to seeing pics of your setup, and please join us for the meeting in March!

Unfortunately, I have a prior engagement that weekend in March, but I'll try.

As far as fish interactions, my tiger barbs thought they were king because I cycled with them and they harassed the (previously two) gourami until I introduced the rainbow shark, he seems to have put them in they're place. The only issue I have is at feeding time. The barbs get real aggressive, so I just feed them first before giving the gourami hours veggie flakes at the feeding station. I'm trying to feed the barbs at the station, seems to work well so far. They also get frozen blood worms and I feed blanched zucchini, romaine and peas.

I'll get some pictures up when I get home.

Welcome, enrgizerbunny!  It's great to have you with us.  I see Liz has revived her old TankGirl avatar to mark the event. *lol*

That is a very nice and clean-looking tank, enrgizer.  I love the gourami in the left corner.  
 Very Happy

Thank you all for the clean comments. It's a relatively new tank, but I do follow a good wcs and gravel vac often.
