The redtail should be fine. They don't get that big (4-6 inches), are rarely aggressive, and should be able to fend off your semi-aggressive tigers. I have barbs and a redtail myself and the redtail pretty much runs shit :). Redtails are also known to eat algae so bonus! Gouramis are occasionally known to be aggressive also, so you are running a risk putting them in your tank, albeit a small one.
