id add the corydoras. Their antics are fun to watch and they are really peaceful, Ive never had any problems with them. They also scavenge so if you overfeed a little bit they will pick up some (not all) of the leftover food. Try a snail if you wish they are a change in scenery..just make sure you only get one otherwise youll be infested.

I might add them.

Would they do good if I had two?

dont put angels with tiger barbs cuz the barbs will eat their tails and if you put angels with neon tetras they will get eaten. larger tetras should be ok. i would definatly get cherry barbs! i have them and they are great! they are some of the few barbs that wont nip at other fish. gouramis sound great! good choice about the neons. i personally think they are a bit boring and would perfer something more interesting. good luck

On the corydoras, I would suggest at least 3. They are very active when in a group and their antics can be entertaining. I've watched them play water slide with the filter return and similar games.

I'm not going to add any Angels.

This is another idea.

-7 or 8 Tiger Barbs
-1 Leporinus? (I do not know if that will work. I just like the way they look. I have heard mixed things about them)
-1 BN Pleco
-1 Rainbow/Red Tailed Shark? ( I have heard they get along well with Plecos and Corys, and they wouldn't be able to catch Tiger Barbs)
-2-4 Corys
-Any other thing.

I really like Tiger Barbs, but I would be willing to put Cherry Barbs if I had to.

i think that sounds good. im pretty sure the tiger barbs would be ok with the sharks, but you might want to reseaech a bit more. i have never had sharks because my lfs says they wouldnt get along with the rest of my fish, so i cant say if they are good or not. i like tiger barbs too and plan on getting some when i get rid of my guppies. i found some info on black banded leporinus, i dont know if its the exact fish you were talking about but they probably act the same. it said they are peacful WHEN KEPT WITH FISH THEIR SIZE. they should be kept in groups and like to have lots of plants and rocks to play in. there is more info in this link if you wanna look. :D

and just to fill in the "any other thing" space i think you should get some gouramis. i think they would look nice in that mix and are big enough so that the leporinus shouldnt bother them, but im not sure about the red tailed shark. just something to think about

If you are talking about black-banded leporinus, they aren't exactly community fish especially when they have the tendency to harass other fish. A 12 inches boisterous fish can be very intimidating to the rest of your fish.

Ok, no Lepornius then.

I still really want to add a Shoal of Tiger Barbs with a Black Tailed Shark/Rainbow Shark. That would probably work, right?

I checked the compatibility chart, and it said that barbs, sharks, cories and plecos all get along with each other.
