I don't see why not. I would just bump the school of gold barbs and rainbows, only because they could nip the bettas fins.

by silver sharks do you mkean bala sharks?if so,your tank is to small. they need tanks that are at least 120 gallons(i think). they reach a foot long and are active schoolers.apat from that and the other schoolers(an issue bruinsbro already addressed),a betta would probably work,depending on whether gold barbs are known fin nippers

I agree that if these "silver sharks" are bala sharks, they need a much larger tank. The only thing I would watch is fin nipping or stress experienced by the betta.

The silver sharks are bala sharks? That tank is around 100 gallons, if they are in fact balas it should be fine temporarily while the OP looks for a new home for them.
