Blood Red Parrots Tank Mates

so I keep Discus and o love my fish, the problem is my girlfriend came home with a surprise for me ( she bought me parrot fish lol). I went out and immediately bought a 60 gallon because I wasn’t about to put the brp’s in with my discus. So my question is what kind of schooling fish can I throw in my new blood red parrot tank? I really want to throw some tiger barbs in with them but I’m afraid they will nip the parrots fins. Do you guys think they will get along? If not, any recommendations?

Thank god you didn’t put them with your Discus lol, that would’ve made me sad. Tiger barbs should be fine, just make sure you have a decent school (at least 12).

With 3 blood parrots in a 60 gallon I wouldn't add any other mid dwellers to be honest. Some kind of pleco would probably work.

Update:
It’s been a couple weeks and the parrots and barbs are thriving! Such a fun tank to watch and feed! Thanks for the info
