Adding more fish

Hi,

I was wondering if I add any more fish to my tank, will it become too crowded?

More specifically, I was thinking of adding another short finned silver lyretail molly, and 5 or so neon tetras.

I'm willing to pass up the extra molly, but I really want the tetras. Will that be okay?

What size is your tank and what are the current inhabitants?

Hm I thought you could see my tank details on my page. I'm a new user so bear with me!

I have a 20 gallon brackish tank with 3 swordtails, 4 mollies, 1 betta, and 2 ghost shrimp.

I would not add anymore but the Molly. 20g is already kinda small for mollies. They do grow to near 6". The betta needs to be removed. He is not okay to live in a brackish tank.

Also, a lot of people can't/don't check your fish tanks tab so it's important to list tank size and inhabitants. (:

Those using the app can't see that stuff so it's always best to include the information.
