Tiger Barbs and eels

Is it possible to put in a half-banded spiny eel with tiger barbs and a rainbow shark in a 30gal tank without a disaster? Only been doing this for a year with the same set up of community fish and just cycled the 30gal for som semi-aggressive

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.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
