I have 5 tiger barbs, 4 tin foil barbs, a rainbow shark, two fiddler crabs, a snail and a plecostomus. I was wanting to add a little something, what would go good with them?

Just my two cent's.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
I definitely would add more Tiger Barb now, at least 3 more, but it would be safer with another 5. Thisis a naturally aggressive species and it is well known that their aggressiveness can be minimized in larger groups, over 10. All may seem calm now, but that may not last as their natural tendancies emerge as they settle in and mature. A larger group would likely prevent problems.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
