Tiger barbs. No. If you're new to fish keeping you should probably start with easier fish to keep, which does leave German Rams out. Tiger barbs have different water requirements, and also they are somewhat aggressive. I would not put them with GBR.
If you like Tiger barbs, read the fish profiles here about them. You could keep a nice group of them, along with some bottom fish, like loaches.
This may be a good way to go on your tank. Both loaches and Tiger barbs are pretty hearty fish. There are many cute loach varieties, including the kulhli loach.
