If you want a barb in that group, go with cherry barbs, a pair of males and the rest female.
For loricarids, you could go with ottos, or 3 to 5 pitbull plecos, or one bristlenosed pleco (albinos are gorgeous, and if you want to spring for a high fin or veil tail, they're unearthly.)
Skip the ropefish. They get up to 3' long, and will see all of the smaller fish as food eventually. There are many many other reasons to avoid a ropefish in this tank, but those should be enough for now. (There are also lots of good reasons to have a ropefish, but not in a 29, and not with the community you have listed.)
