many years ago our family friends brought a bunch of medium sized tiger barbs for their cichlid tank. during the week one by one the barbs where eaten my medium sized cichlids.

It was kind of fasinating that that got eaten by larger types of fish.

I wouldn't say fascinating as much as common sense. Big fish eat smaller fish, and aggressive fish certainly are moreso than willing to prove as an example for this.

*shrug* when I was a beginner I had a school of tiger barbs and thought adding a baby oscar would be nice. Needless to say I came home and saw a barb tail hanging out of the little oscar's mouth. These were fully grown barbs as well.
