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.
