Gwarsh, what do you like ? I'm re-stocking my 50g and it can be tough. keep in mind theres a special fish for all levels stock your top ,middle and bottom. Don't be so desperate to stock up , you don't have to take it just because it's all they have.If you've seen something you like you can ask them to order it.Big al's staff are quite knowledgeable they should help alot. I.m slowly achieving...
Gouramis on top, rainbows for the middle, borelli dwarf cichlids for the bottom with a school of purple danios, blue neons some yoyo loaches and i have other fish , maybe up for adoption.I also ordered a few unique ones- loners tho.

Tiger barbs, probably not a good choice in a 30gal with the smaller fish. They would pick on the fry for sure.
I think there are some rainbow fish that stay small, could look into that.
