Maybe temporarily, but not in the long-run IMO. They're active fish and need lots of swim room.

It's best not to ... Tiger Barbs are very active and will need a lot of swimming room. For Tiger Barbs a 29 gal should be the ideal minimum.

Agreed. 10 Gallons is just very tiny for all these little fish. I would recommend jumping to a 29+ as well. This will help give them room, better filtration, and even room for a few more little guys.
