Tankmates for cherry barbs

I have a 29g tank which has 2 cherry barbs at the moment, and I'm going to add 4 more in the next few weeks (6 total). I'm hoping to be able to add 1 or 2 other species to the tank after I put in the cherry barbs. Right now I'm just looking for ideas of possible compatible fish. Thanks a lot!

Honestly, I would get like 9-10 Cherry barbs. 6/7 females, 3 males.

Cherries go with any peaceful community tank dweller. This means cories, small plecos, tetras, hatchetfish, etc.

i have had good luck with gold barbs mixed with cherry barbs, contrasting colors look great.

In the past I have kept them with rosy and tiger barbs with no problems. They are pretty, I read they're schoolers but they would not school very much at all as my rosies and tigers would and I had 6 at one time.
