Mauro, Denison Barbs are very fast-moving, active fish, which can at times show some aggression, and grow quite large. Not a good fit imo with the rest of your stock.
They certainly are not good...

And put the 20 Neons in the 12 gal long.

Live Mysis shrimp ? wow - had no idea you could get them live - you sure can't up here in Canada.
