The Serpae need a large group, same reason as Tiger Barb, to restrain their aggression. So that would work. I would say 12 Serpae Tetra.
The Melon Barb I am not familiar with, but doing a quick reference check suggests it might be too mellow for Tigers. I read it should be OK with peaceful fish; that is not an adjective for Tigers.
