"Stuck" with tiger barbs

So I have a 27 G tank and I started it with tiger barbs, and now I have 6. At this point I'm somewhat over the barbs and ready to move on to some new species.

i had four of them but recently, in the last two days, i have found two dead. one last night when i got home from work and one this morning when i woke up. i dont know what happen. all my parameters seem to be ok, i dont know if they were killed by the silver tip sharks or what.

i am also ready to move to a different species. i think i want to go with a community tank.

i think some stuff that wont kill each other.
