I heard they would be fine with what I have, 55g, fluvalc4 filter, with;
Platties,
Neon tetras,
Rosy tetra
Cardinal tetra
Balloon mollies,
Dwarf gouramis (very docile)
Zebra danios
Glo danios
Kribensis,
Peruvian snail
Apple snail

Denison barbs get quite large, like a strong current to swim against. They also like longer tanks of 4 feet or more.

could I transfer them to my 100g that I'm keeping in reserve, I'm not sure it's 4 feet...

Ok, so I checked, even my 55g is almost 4 feet (I'm Canadian so I don't calculate with feet), so my 100g Is for sure more. Would they be Good tank mates ?

Your tank is Ok for Denison barbs!!! They get about 4-6 inches max. I'd say you can get a small school of 4-5 of them

Not sure how big Peruvian snails get but Kribs will eat snails if they think they can

Kribs will really eat snails? ??

He's already the size of a tennis ball, but thanks for the heads up! :)

Yeah I was thinking more the size if nitrites, so that should be good!
