Tiger barbs are beautiful, entertaining, and vicious monsters! In that size tank, and probably even in a big tank, they will harass the gouramis until they kill them. Then, my experience has been that the barbs will begin playing "king of the hill", harassing the weakest of the group until it dies, followed by the next weakest, etc. until only one is left. Then, the "winner" will get so lonely he will soon join his brothers in fish heaven.
You might assume I don't like Tiger barbs. I love them, but never again will I watch them play that game.
