I would fill out your schools of tetras and barbs first. They tend to be very unhappy in small numbers... try at least 5 or 6 individuals of each species. Then if you want some different colours in there you could go with something bright like cardinal tetras.

Soco's right about the tetras - Black neons really feel safer in a school of 6 or more. Cherry Barbs, on the other hand, are not a shoaling fish - they will do fine with company, and fine without.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

I found the happiness index of Neons the best when they were 2 dzs in school with 2 dzs with Butterfly(Ornamental) Guppies. That means they were mixed with another school of guppies.
