Welcome to AA None of those fish belong in a 10 gallon tank. They both need around a 30 gallon tank. You'll need to get a bigger tank before you can think of adding anymore fish.

If you got rid of the barbs you could probably get away with keeping some mollies in the 10g. Tiger barbs are very active fish and are also very nippy. They would pick on your mollies if you added some. I would ditch the barbs and get something more suited for a 10g setup.

tiger barb is a schooling type of fish. they need at least 6-8 fishes to make a community. so if you make a community you have to convert your aquarium into 20-25 gallon...
