Mix Discus and cherry/rose Barbs?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am new to fishkeeping and am currently setting up my 4x3x2ft tank to eventually house some discus with a few other peaceful fish. I was wondering whether cherry or rosie barbs would go ok with Discus? I intend on introducing a few different schools slowly and ensuring my paramaters are spot on by the time Discus make it into the tank. Other tankmates I am considering are a couple of Blue Rams, Cardinal tetras, corydoas and a few bristlenose. I would love to add a few cherry or rosie barbs in to mull out the Rams a little..... At the moment I have 4 Rams and 2 cory. Any advice is much much appreiated :)

Thanks for that VegasMick, that was my gut feeling but I sore cherry barbs in with discus in a LFS the other day and they recommended putting them together. They looked quite happy in the shop, but that was only for the 5 min I spent infront of the tank I suppose. Might stick to tetras, thanks a tonne!
