Do these really get to be 5 or 6 in. long? How high would the body be if this long on this species? Are they tough or tender fish? Could they be in with tinfoils, Balas, 1 oscar?????:)

Yes, I did briefly check out the golden tinfoil posts.

You mention the rosy barbs were agressive towards the cories but do you think they would bully or nip big fish like on the list I gave too?:(

I have 3 Rosy Barbs and 4 Tiger Barbs in my 20 gallon tall and I hope that they do not grow 5-6 inches. I understand maybe 2-3 inches.

I find that my Tiger Barbs are much more aggressive than my Rosy Barbs. I have cories in my tanks too and the Rosy Barbs do not even bother with them. On occassion the Tiger Barbs will check out the cories, but usually will leave them alone.

I had 6 Rosy Barbs. 3 male and 3 female. For the most part they picked on each other. But occasionally they would all gang up on other fish like an angry mob.
