Cool Barb tank mates?

Hi, I currently have a 130 litre (34 gallon) fish tank which has, 6 ruby barbs, 2 paradise gourami, and 1 bristle nose catfish. I am just wondering if my tank is under stocked/overstocked? and also if it is not overstocked then what fish would you recommend getting?

I think you can add to the barb school and also get a bottom feeder like a school of Corys. As long as you have adequate filtration, that is.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
