+ 1 to firefly; even if you keep the Tiger barbs in a big school to curb their aggresive nature, the Cherry barbs would still be bullied because of the shy nature mentioned.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

It's best to get something that will be able to stand up against them and win. If you get a fish like that and plant it well, it should be a good setup.
Maybe tinfoil barbs would work.
If you want a tiger barb variety here are the kind I know of:
Red (Quite rare, but I once saw and these are NICE)
And for bottom feeders get a loach that is aggressive when it comes to feeding. Tiger barbs will hog some bottom feeder foods.

This is a 125 gallon tank the OP has, right?? Like I said before, tank size plays a HUGE role in behavior.

But the last tank I will be setting up so have to make it a good one.
Really want some different plants though as will be about 380 watts of VHO at 10,000 K
No Co2 at the moment I have it all though , except would need to get the bottle refilled.
