All of those fish you took a picture of are variants of tiger barbs. They are a schooling fish, so they prefer a group of at least 6, usually do best at numbers from 8-10.
I'm not sure how big your tank is, but 29 gallons should be the minimum for keeping a group of these due to their fast movements. An even larger tank would be better. Are they being kept with anything else?

In my experience a 29 isn't even enough.125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats
