Unless you're a Denison barb. I keep a school of them with my rams and they get along great. Denison's are probably the most peaceful barbs I've ever seen. But they'd be much too large to house in a 10gl. I just wanted to add my 2 cents about certain barbs that will mix well with dwarf cichlids

I have a school of 5 green tiger barbs with a female blue ram and she is a very gutsy little girl. she holds her own and is healthy but this isnt something to try if youre a novice, if you try it i would have a q tank ready to separate if it doesnt work out. a pair of rams would do fine in a 10 gallon but that is as small as you should go. mine spawned like crazy. if you get a pair i would not get too many other fish since they will be trying to breed most likely and will stress themselves chasing other fish away. About the barbs, all im saying is its not impossible if you know what youre working with

Tiger barbs might work with rams, but only in a much larger tank. I'd say 20g minimum for tiger barbs as they really need a lot of swimming room. A school of smaller tetras should work just fine, though. There are plenty of tetras that would work: neons, cardinals, ember flame, black neons, glowlights, lemons, pristella, bloodfins, etc etc. Cories would also work, but the ram will spend most of its time near the bottom so you'd be a little cramped for space and wouldn't have much going on in the mid to upper regions of the tank.
