29g stocking ideas

In the future.... Not until I save up some money and am in the new place and my new tank is established.... But I'm wanting to get a list of fish to stock in my 29g....

In my 15g, which I know is stocked wrong. I don't need to be yelled at. It was my beginner tank, and I listened to the store employee.... But I should of researched better I know..... I currently have :

I dwarf gourami
1 platy ( I think)
1 pleco (I know about the bio load & size)
10 neon tetras
3 tiger barbs (I know about the schools & aggr.)
1 Cory cat ( I know about the schools)
2 mystery snails
1 African dwarf frog (who I haven't seen all week, I hope he is just hiding.... After this one I'm done)

I still don't know what I plan on doing with my pleco.... He does an amazing job with algae, and is fun to watch, I haven't had trouble with my water parameters in a 15g so I would think he would be fine in a 29g.... If/when he out grows my tank, I'll hope to be in a place where I could upgrade my tank, or take him to a local fish store who has huge plecos- like 8-10!

I still haven't decided what I'm doing with my barbs..... I know some people think I should "rehome" them.... But I just haven't decided... I really would like to figure out a way to keep them, maybe start a semi-aggressive community.

I know for sure that i want to get more cats.... I now know they need schools... How many should I get???

Anything else that would be good in a 29g community?

I think of you put the swordtail, platy, Pleco, and 6 cories in the 29gallon that would help a lot. Not sure about the barbs though. I've never owned them before. Your neons and DG should be fine in the 15.
