Another stocking question

I've upgraded my 75-litre to a 165-litre. It currently has 6 platies (5 adults, one baby), 6 pristella tetras, 5 cory trilineatus, 3 cory habrosus, and an apple snail. I asked before about other different fish I could have, but I've decided to just stick with the same types that I already have. I'm going to get some more cory habrosus (I'm thinking 4 more), but how many more of my other fish could I get? Do I have room for more big cories as well? Thanks for any help.

Thanks.

How big do the black skirts get? My platies are big, they are my "main fish" in the tank. I thought I'd just get more of the same fish so I'd have bigger groups.

Consider your pristellas too. I have a group of 15 in my 55gallon and they look fantastic. Especially if they're not feeling super comfy and school up. That's mainly after I've done a water change or put my hand in the tank though.

30g SE Asian Tank
15 Lambchop Rasbora
2 Gold White Cloud Minnows
3 Dwarf Chain Loaches
2 Powder Blue Dwarf Gourami

55g Amazon Tank
2 Wild Type Angels
1 Marble Angel
1 Black Angel
1 Koi Angel
2 Bolivian Rams
14 Pristella Tetra
10 Dwarf Pencilfish
2-3 Twig Catfish (to come)

Yes, I was thinking of increasing my pristellas to 9, but I'm really not sure how many fish overall I can fit in my tank. I was thinking of getting 4 more habrosus (to bring it up to 7), getting 3 more pristellas (to 9) and another platy. Would that be ok, and could I get more big cories?
