Odessa or Tiger barbs with Rainbowfish?

I have a 55g heavily planted tank thats been up for almost a year with: 7 Rainbowfish, 4 Yoyo Loaches, 3 Bamboo Shrimp, and 1 SAE. Everything's been going good water parameters are: Temp 77, pH 7, Ammonia 0, Nitrate 0.10, nitrite 0, And im wanting to add some-type of schooling/shoaling fish and Ive narrowed it down to either Odessa or Tiger barbs, I have always wanted Odessas but heard that they like cooler waters but other sources say they like water up to 82? its very confusing, so id like to hear your guys thoughts on either tiger or odessa barbs with rainbows.

Then tiger barbs are fine, but rainbows need room to swim. I don't know how heavily planted your tank is. Got a photo?
