Denison barbs get quite large, like a strong current to swim against. They also like longer tanks of 4 feet or more.

Ok, so I checked, even my 55g is almost 4 feet (I'm Canadian so I don't calculate with feet), so my 100g Is for sure more. Would they be Good tank mates ?

Your tank is Ok for Denison barbs!!! They get about 4-6 inches max. I'd say you can get a small school of 4-5 of them
