Do you have test kits? Test for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. When ammonia and nitrites hit zero you'll see a spike in nitrates. Do a 25% water change and you should be okay after that. You might see problems before that happens though because you didn't give the system a change to cycle before adding the first fish.

Cherry barbs may be aggressive to the others, you might want to rethink that option.
