I got some tiger barbs, and gut loaded them for a little while then they went into the aquarium with my silvers, and they weren't even close to fast enough.
lol, the barbs will be with the jardini as a baby so as it grows up it mite not consider them as food, hopefully. will it be a problem if the jardini and the barbs are the same size? will the barbs bully the jardini?

I raise fish up with my old siver aro hopeing he wouldn't see them as food either, well it didn't work out so well, and he got a nice meal.

Theres always a chance though. Just be careful with the tiger barbs cause they may nip at his fins, so make sure you get a least five like you mentioned earlier.

cool. is it a generally accepted fact that when they are kept in groups they will not bother other fish?
