    Anyone have tinfoil barbs?
    Hi
    I was about to restock my empty 75 gallon tank with angels when my parents told me they were moving into a retirement community. So I am inheriting their 3 tinfoils (on the large size but not huge) and very large common pleco. I am going to rehome pleco. Are they tinfoils peaceful? Should I just rehome all of them and start with all new fish or can I add something else to tank after they get settled?
    Thanks in advance
    Lora

    Tinfoils are peaceful, but eat plants, and tend to eat all the food before anything else does.
