Stocking Ideas for a 30G

I need some ideas for fish in my new tank. It is a 30G, and has a lot of driftwood with hiding spots. I am adding mostly live plants with a few silk plants. I 100% know I want 6-8 Tiger Barbs and maybe a RTBS. I want some suggestions for other fish. I was thinknig cories, loaches, platies...the list goes on. Thoughts?

Danios are your last options. I believe you've been told before that RTBS will not tolerate other bottom dwellers with that tanksize.

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.

Ah, I must have forgotten.

I have a few ideas in my head. I was also thinking about adding some Dwarf Gouramis or Harlequin Rasboras the mix, so that the RTBS wouldn't have any other bottom-dwellers to deal with.

If I took out the RTBS, I was thiking of adding cories with Chain Loaches/Kuhlii Loaches.

The tank has a lot of hiding spots, and will have a lot of plants.

My first idea is Tiger Barbs, a RTBS, a or a few Dwarf Gouramis, and something else if I only go with 1 Dwarf Gourami.

My second is Tiger Barbs, cories/loaches, Harlies/Gouramis, etc.
