Hi, I want to get some dither/target fish for my community tank and I was thinking either tiger barbs or neon tetras. I'm leaning toward the neons since the barbs are Asian are their any problems with mixing Asian and central American? Could the neons thrive being with some small convicts? What are your guys opinions?

I'd say barbs, I have 6 tiger barbs in with 2 cons a green terror and a red jewel and they all do great together.

I haven't kept many Central American Cichlids, but I agree that the barbs are probably a better fit. At the very least, they would be much faster and evasive runners if faced with unsolicited attention from your Cichlids.

Yeah plus barbs are a lot more active and will liven your tank up nicely. And I think they're a better choice to keep with CA/SA cihlid, IMHO!!
