You'll have to choose between the eel and the rainbow shark, as the two will probably fight to the death. I think either one should be ok with the tiger barbs, but you'll probably want to wait for a second opinion in case I'm wrong.

Keep either the rainbow shark or the eel. I'd pick the shark. The eel will be nipped by the tiger barbs.
