I have a 60 gallon tank with 12 tiger barbs, 4 giant danios, 8 albino cory's and a couple of bristle nose plecos. What other fish can i put in there? I would like either a small school of fish or a centerpiece fish.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

How long has your 60g been setup this way?

I'd be inclined to not add any additional fish.

I think you need to wait until your fish grow & you see just how large some of those can get. Almost all of our fish are juveniles when we buy them, so they have some growing to do. I hope you have a tight fitting lid, our giant danios were jumpers, be careful!

See how that combo works longer term, say at least 6 or 8 months. Get into good tank maintenance habits like large weekly water changes. Then come back & tell us how it's going. Our tanks should be for pretty long term, be patient!
