Schooling fish

I have a 75 gallon tank with
8 gouramis
6 tiger barbs
6 platys
1 iridescent shark
1 pleco
Ad currently trying to get my hands on a peacock eel. While I know im about maxed out on fish id like to get maybe another group or so of a small schooling fish. My tiger barbs school through my tank all the time and its so cool to watch. Im looking for any recommendations for stocking yet. Advice is also welcome seems im still somewhat of a newbie. Thanks

My favorite schooling fish are rummynose tetras. Regarding your current stocking, iridescent sharks are actually catfish which get very large and are food fish in Asia. They are also very jumpy and usually injure themselves against the glass when spooked. Definitively a fish which shouldn't be offered for sale. If your pleco is a common pleco, as opposed to a bristlenose pleco, it too will grow too large for the tank. They are also pooping machines. I would rehome the pleco and shark.
