You don't say so we can't know, but both these fish should be in a group, as is explained in the profile for each.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

That Barb group sounds amazing, i've got a small group (7) 3 normal 2 albino 2 green and i just love watching them swim around the tank and battle it out for dominance, it's amazing!

Completely sold on Tiger Barbs, beautiful fish.
