Fish for a 30g

What fish can I put in a 30g tank? It's 30.3L x 18.6H x 12.5W. I'm beginning to fill it, but I'm not getting the filter, heater, etc. until Christmas.. I really want semi-aggressive fish since I already have tropical community fish in one tank already. This is what I'm thinking, but I need 1 more species to go with this:

*5-6 Tiger Barbs
*1-2 Chinese Algae Eaters

I know the adult CAEs get aggressive and territorial, but my CAE grew up with the guppies/platies in the community tank, and it doesn't bother them. It just stays at the bottom while the others stay at the top/middle most of the time. I just want suggestions that have SEMI-AGGRESSIVE fish in them.

Welcome to Fishforum.com.

How big is the adult CAE? They're quite slow growers and can reach 10 inches max.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
