Hello, I just got my tiger barbs, I got 4 of them and planning to get 4 more. My question is... can I still add a couple of dwarf cichlids with them along with a group of 6 kuhli loaches and 1 bristle nose pleco? or is that too crowded already? I have 36gal tank.

Might be a good idea to forego the Dwarf Rams. An aggressive group of Tiger Barbs have the potential to make their lives miserable.
Maybe stay with an Asian theme. Look to add a group of smaller Barbs, like Cherry's or Goldens. The Loaches should be okay if a sufficient hardscape is provided.
A BN Pleco would probably work as well. They seem to do better when driftwood is present.
