Hi...Tiger Barbs are not suitable for a 10gal tank, as they require more swimming room. Actually, the Angelfish won't be able to stay in the tank, either...
Stocking, stocking, stocking. None of those fish are appropriate for the 10 gallon. The fighting will continue until you move them to a larger space.

Agreed, they need more space. I have 10 in a 20 long and they are doing wonderfully, they are the only inhabitants and I think it's a striking tank (or will be when the plants grow in.)

Going to repeat what the others have said. Tanks too small for even the angelfish much less the barbs. Angels get 5 inches. Where will it swim?
Small tanks=Small fish!!!!!!!

it needs more space then 10 gallons but since you got 6 of them i at least recommend a 25 gallon tank at the least
