You should have some more room for a few more fish. (Unless of course you have female mollies in which case you will be over run with babies soon enough) If you plan to add more fish this is what I would suggest as far as stocking goes:
3- Dalmatian mollies
6-zebra danios
2-dwarf gouramis
1- tiny angel fish
A bottom feeder. I would recommend either a bristlenose pleco/pitbull/rubbernose pleco or a school of about 5 cory cats. However, research which cory you decide to go with as some of them have different temperature requirements than the rest of your fish
