Hi Busgod, I've never kept the two together but have read that keeping the two can lead to major problems with aggression from the tiger barbs.

Personally, I wouldn't attempt it.

What do you currently have in the tank, and what size is it?

A 4-footer tank with tiger barbs and loaches is far more entertaining than the tigers and cherries together.

I can see a tank with a very dark substrate ( black) , tiger barbs and clown loaches. That to me would be very eye catching.

Funny thing I am planning to get some tiger barbs for my tank already containing several loaches.
