URGENT! Help stock my tank

Hello, i couldn't get much of a response from my other thread so i'm posting another. In the picture is a 8 gallon hexagon aquarium. I have a tetra 10 gallon filter in it. I know there isn't any heater but im gettting one tonight. I need help stocking and I am open to any fish. I would like to get tiger barbs but if i dont i dont care. I want to have a colorful tank, with hardy fish.

You could do a school of ember tetras and some really bright colourful shrimp. Endlers are pretty hard too. Have you cycled the tank

I would suggest some small sort of tetras. Two or three small schools. And have a big beautiful betta as your centerpiece.

This is a 8g tank. Don't think there will be enough room for 2-3 small schools

If you got 5 neons and 3 rummy nose, or another small schooling fish, I think it would be okay imo.

Rummy noses are WAY too active for a 8g. I have them in a 33g and they're the most active fish I've ever seen. Neons or rummy noses shouodnt be placed in a aquarium less than 20g. Even though some people think neons can go in a 10g

You could try chilli rasboras, or cestial pearl danios. I'd say a single pea puffer but you want colour! A pair of badis basis wouod work also
