If the tiger barbs are super important to you then you should just get 10 and provide LOTS of hiding places for the other fish in the tank. Tiger barbs are major fin nippers.

I would ditch the tiger barbs, ready, tiger barbs= no angels, no gouramis, no betas, no fish like that as the tigers will nip them to death
I would get 12 kuhli loaches

Looks like a nice sand! I think you need to rinse it a bit more

Yea, but it looks very cloudy in the water, I rinsed 40 pounds of black sand, 10 pounds at a time, and I rinsed 10 pounds with 20 rinses, so I rinsed 40 pounds 80 times

Yea, not sure how different it is, but it needs to look almost clear, otherwise you will have a cloudy tank, of course it will settle, but it will look nicer
