How big is your tank? How long has it been cycled and how did you cycle? What are your plants for the future of the tank? My first suggestion/tip is: water changes, don't skimp on them, do them regularly, and when in doubt do another water change(within reason).

How big is the tank? For one thing plecos need real wood in their diet to aid in digestion so I would suggest getting a piece of driftwood for yours to rasp on

Well all of the fish you have should have more than a ten gallon really. The tiger barbs are schooling fish and need a lot more space they're also semi-aggressive but aggression outside the school can be minimized by keeping a proper group The swordtails are social fish and are recommended to be kept in groups preferably 1 male for every 2 or 3 females, swordtails also have a higher bioload than you would think for their size. I'm unsure about the exact tetra you have but all tetras are schooling too so a group of 5+ here as well.

How did you cycle your tank? Do you know why your barb died?
