Any other fish you would recommend instead?
I know the scissortail rasbora should be in a big group but I dont want to add more, he is the one remaining out of 4 I originally got about 4 years ago
Just make sure you have female Cherry Barbs and not all males. 2 males and 4 females would work. My males GLOWED when they were happy and in breeding condition and my females looked really good also. Females are bronze with red on the fins.
I would skip the Platies unless you just add one female. They make more.
I'd add 3 more Cories of the same species, but I love them in groups. Much more active and playfull.
I would rehome the Scissortail they need longer tanks with room to swim.
You could add Neons or Lemon Tetras or Harlequin Rasboras. Mine did great with my Cherry Barbs.
