Rocked and fake planted(picture of the tank when it was cycling in my tanks) Running a tetra whisper 45 ex and tetra 20 filter on it.
Added some fresh water aq salt to it as well.
currently has 1 male yellow lab
3 tiger barbs
5 green tiger barbs

If my tank is fully stocked then i will not be adding anything else.
If it isn't i would be looking for something prolly for the bottom.
Any suggestions?
i will be adding more caves and plants, in the future.

I saw a black mystery snail at the LFS and not sure about the compatibility of it with my yellow lab, because he seems to be a bit of a nosey/ pestering guy.

Would i be able to put like 5 kuhli loaches or something along those lines in.
Need some feed back,and opinions.

Would it be a waste of money to put LIVE plants in this tank? Will the lab shred them up?

The yellow lab is a bit of a strange fish to have in with tiger barbs, especially because they do better in groups of other malawi cichlids. I'd take out the lab and put a firemouth or a rainbow cichlid (pair perhaps)

I would also trade the lab for either a pair of kribs or pair of jewels. They're pretty easy to sex so should get a male and female. They will do well with your barbs.
