Here you go. Not a good shot. They are black with yellow stripes.

Maybe a Bronze Sunset Cory? Definetly a species of Bronze Cory, other than that I have no idea. Confused Nice tank, too, do you use plastic or real plants? Also, your Bala Sharks might get a bit big to be in with your barbs. But don't quote me on that one. Laughing

Nice tank!
The Balas and Tiger Barbs should be fine together. However, Balas do best in schools of three or more and will need a larger tank (120+ glns.), which you may be planning on already.
Also RedTailed Black sharks should be in a tank without any others of their own kind as they get quite agressive toward each other. You may be OK in your size tank if they each pick one end and stay there. I would just keep a close eye on them over the next year, as they mature. You could end up with one dead one.

OK, my experience might just be a fluke with odds of 1/1,000,000, but my Albino RTBS has actually CO2-existed with my RTBS since I first bought them about 2 years ago. First when I was a noob, I had them both in my 70 litre, they were fine in there. Now in my 240 litre they peacefully CO2-exist with a Red Gibbi Pleco and two Featherfin Squeakers. Either that or my monster piece of mopani wood in the middle of my tank has suddenly became the Berlin Wall or something! Laughing See how it goes, you might become like me and become a rare case.

I don't plan on keeping the Balas. Someone didn'y want them and I had no fish in the tank at the time. My 2 redtails get along great so far.I am using plastic plants. I plan to change over to live plants. I'm getting 2 Zebra plecos then I'm done adding to fish to that tank,
