    Tigers And Rainbows?

    Just got a 55 that came with 2 big fat tiger barbs, 1 blue gourami, and a pleco. They all seem to get along even though I read there should be at least 7 barbs. Can I try rainbows with them? Should I get more barbs first? Also liked the look of diamond tetras... What would you do?
