Will corycags really work? I have wanted some for so long but i was a little worried about putting them with the barbs.

From the research I did it doesn't really look like cories would be the best fish to put in with tiger barbs. Tiger barbs tend to nip at smaller fish. It was said they get less nippy if they are in a bigger school and that the barbs should be kept in groups of 5-6. Some of the compatible bottom dwellers they mentioned were bristlenose plecos, clown loaches, and yoyo loaches. Loaches need to be kept in groups though and can get fairly large (yoyo-6', clown-16'). On other sites many people have mentioned keeping cories and barbs together without problems since the barbs tend to pick on each other. Having a proper group of each species may help to decrease problems. It is ultimately your decision to decide if you want to put cories in with the tiger barbs.
