Question Stuck?

I have a fresh water 50 gallon bowfront and trying to find the perfect balance of fish. I have inherited some fish and mixed it with my own and need to help with what to keep and what to pass on.

I have the following fish:
6- Tiger barb
3- Albino tiger barb
6- Red Eyed Balloon Tetra
1- King Beta (male)
1- Gold Gourami 3" (had two but one died a while ago)
2- Cobalt Gourami 1"
2- Flame Gourami 1"
3- Rasbora Scissor fish
1- Freshwater Crab
5 -Assorted small schooling fish (cardinal etc..)

Welcome to AA! Don't know if you noticed, but you posted in the saltwater forum. Try posting in the freshwater instead. I wouldn't really know how to answer this. Maybe cut down on the barbs?

I don't think the beta will last with the barbs. They will probably pester him to death, literally.
