Is it ok to mix different barbs?

Mii

Is it ok to mix barbs? I know they won't school and each needs a school of it's own species, more concerned with if the different schools would fight. Some barbs I'm sort of interested in but I haven't researched all of them yet are cherry barbs, rosy barbs, gold barbs, odessa barbs, black ruby barbs, maaaaaaaybe tiger barbs but from what I've heard they're probably too big and mean. How do tanks with multiple species of barbs tend to get along? Note that this is a hypothetical tank that does not exist and I just like fantasizing about tanks that I could maybe keep in the future.

I had tiger barbs and golden diamond barbs (puntias semifasciolatus) together with no issues. The issue was with my Queen loaches munching on their tails.
So now they are in a tank with cherry barbs and no issue.
