Tiger Barbs

What are some good fish to put in with tiger barbs? Right now I have 5 and was thinking maybe a redtail shark?
Any other suggestions?

What size tank do you have? Generally, I'd recommend first having 7 or more tiger barbs, just so they take their aggression out on each other.

Sharks (I have a rainbow but are similar) tend to like long tanks as they are quite active swimmers. A 29 would probably be a bit small.
