It will be close, might be able too. I'm pretty sure you should be able to before New Years. If it is cycled then, you could stock your tank on New Years Eve.

30G tank? I think it will work just fine. Could even go 5 Cherry Barbs if you want, as they do well in groups. I got 2 Fire Red Dwarf Gouramis for my centerpiece fish in my 26G. They are brightly colored, and look great. Once you get a definite plan for fish, post it.

The 1:2 or 1:3 ratio is for breeding fish like cichlids. But for barbs, I don't think there's any set way to make them happy except larger groups. I have a group of 5 tiger barbs, 3 albino tiger barbs, and found out my single black little guy is a green tiger barb. They all hang together and are very happy. And I think I'm going to get at least 2 more of the green tiger barbs to even things out.

I have a 55G tank, so I can handle a much larger group. I think you'd be ok with 5 cherry barbs in the 30G with your other fish you plan on getting.
