Personally I would not put Tiger Barbs with Corydoras, nor Corys with the shark. Sharks will harass fish who enter their territory, and corys cannot learn to stay away from them.

Right, and it's too small for two Bristlenoses. I wouldn't even keep one in a tank that size.

One could be jumping to try and escape the other, and causing injuries in the process. They usually fight face to face so the back injuries probably aren't the result of fighting per se.

Agree with both replies. Tiger barbs need to be kept with other bold, semi-aggressive fast swimmers. Slow-pokes or timid fish are likely to be de-finned.

As you mention, Bettas are not used to large aquariums or other fish. He's probably still upset about that. Some also totally freak out in Hex tanks, due to the wild reflections.

It depends on what you like, but I wouldn't suggest cherry barbs. They like to be in groups of at least 5, and 10 gals is too small, IMO.
