30 gallons minimum, probably more.. Tiger Barbs need lots of space.
If you were to get a 30 gallon tank, and leave your neons and gobies in the 10, you could probably add another 4 neons and make them all happier.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

it could quite possibly be that the bio-load for your tank is too much for the bacteria, causing a spike in nitrates, which will feed an algae bloom. as will over-feeding. you might also try leaving your lights off. definitely should invest in SOME sort of test kit and post params here so we will know what the next step is. Good luck!

I agree, the tank is badly overstocked. I am not very good at telling you how overstocked it is, but I know you need to get rid of a fair few of the fish, or get a much larger tank. At least double the size anyway.
Good luck.
