I want to plan my next tank around a group of black ruby barbs.
40gal breeder tank with lots of crypts.

What other species would go well in there and be somewhat appropriate?
Thanks

"Asian" suggests Loaches. Zebra Loaches are a good size for this tank.
Also, Gouramis. You might get 1 Pearl, or try some Honey Gouramis. If there is a lot of plant material at the surface then there would be hiding places for 1M + 2F Gouramis- if the male gets too pushy the females could hide in the plants.

That would give you some action at top, middle and lower levels of the tank.
