While 6 inches is possible, most sources say 3 is normal, but I think the Rosy are a nice contrast to the Tiger. The Black Ruby Barb, while my favourite, is very similar to the Tiger and much the same size, and they will get lost together.
They'll get along, as much as any barbs. All barbs are active and somewhat feisty, and for this reason should not be combined with slow or sedate fish. But that is not the issue here. I think 1077 was thinking more of the size in a 55g.
Six in the group will work (Rosy).
