Could any of the "sharks" go with green tiger barbs in a 55 gallon tank?

We don't have much desire to upgrade if it can't work out so I decided to ask before we spend the money to upgrade.

Thanks for all the help !

I know nothing about these semI aggressive guys

rainbow and red tails would be fine in a 55. But just one. Their conspecific aggression is high.

Like one fish or one or the other? Sorry if that's a silly question

Hmm... Good question. Any interest in cichlids? I'm kind of a cichlid guy.

Maybe...

12-15 tiger barbs
1 red tail shark
2 Bolivian rams/rainbow cichlids/ sajicas
8 zebra loaches

Lots of options but that's what I'd do with those fish. Wood just have to see how everyone gets along and have a backup plan if it doesn't go as planned

I think that Zebra loaches are best as the only bottom dweller. They are kinda possessive
