tank mates for rhombo barbs

hi everyone,

i have a 40 gallon tank with 6 rhombo barbs in it and i'm looking for some good companions. i had a betta fish in there for a few years but he recently died. the betta was aggressive and so i couldn't put anything else in the tank. now that he's gone, i'd like to have a few more fish in there.

any suggestions? thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum! I agree, Corys would be a nice addtion and they are so mellow AND funny. Are the barbs the only inhabitants at the moment?

this is the tank. it's sort of in a bit of disarray because we just moved.

Yes, but I can see once you get it out of its state of "disarray" it's going to look great.
