I'll try to keep it short. I have just upgraded to a 55 gallon tank. Sadly after a nasty ich outbreak im down to only 1 tiger barb. I couldn't put him down so kept him around for a month until upgrading and he's been doing fine. I am just looking for opinions on stocking. I'm wanting to get him 9 friends for a total of 10 tiger barbs, some kind of bottom dweller catfish (thinking pictus?) and a Cichlid. I've been looking into Firemouths but I can't seem to find any with good coloration like in pictures. Any other mid-size cichlids you all like? Would another school of ~2" fish be okay? Thanks in advance. (Set up today so sediment is still settling but here's a picture.)

I think a school of cherry barbs would go great in a tank like that.
Not a bad idea but I've somehow never seen them at my lfs. I've been looking at red eye tetras or Buenos Aires tetras but I'm not sure how compatible they will be with barbs.
