How big is the tank? If the flow is good enough and they have space to swim around, they should be ok. They're hardy if these two parameters are met.

CHeers,

I think it should be a lovely home for them. Its good to get 6 or more fish if you are buying such groupies, they do well in larger groups.

What is the fish count like? not the types but number of each fish. Hope your tank isnt overstocked/

Get a group of about 6 as Kumar said. also get a wavemaker with good flow. Barbs like to be in groups; else they get stressed.

Cheers,
