The mix of the TBs and the red tailed shark seems reasonable to me as long as you only have one red tailed shark. You could probably do more than one when you upgrade. I haven't ever mixed bloodfin tetras with tiger barbs, but it sounds like you'll have enough tiger barbs to keep themselves busy and not busy bothering and nipping the other fish.

Just based on the one shark I adopted (ruby or rainbow, either name is correct), I wouldn't mix them with other fish without having some obvious hiding places ready so that they can hang out without being territorial and aggressive. Mine started nipping at my cories after I added a few more to the tank; he might have felt crowded.
