Questions About My fish living conditions In my tank

I have 2 Dwarf Gouramis, 12 Neon Tetras , 6 Zebra Danios and 1 Small Suckerfish.
If I added 1 More Suckerfish, 1 Ropefish and 5-6 Serpae Tetras, Will They compete for food and will the Living conditions be suitable? I have a Few plants in my tank, a lighter and a filter. I don't Really know the Dimensions of my tank thou. Its pretty decent, at least medium in size.
So Back to the question, If I add 1 Sucker fish , 1 Rope fish and 5-6 Serpae tetras, Will they turn aggresive or is there any precautions I should look after. Thanks in advance!

You can check the fish profiles here and learn more, but keeping Serpae tetras with gouramis is not a good idea. Without knowing your tank size, it's difficult for anyone to tell you if your tank would be overloaded if you even added more fish. You can measure your tank (length-width-height) and at least post that.

Im Going to Estimate My tank is L:35cm x B:25cm x H: 30cm could be a bit more or less. So Would the Conditions fit?

No, that's a very small tank. If there are 30cm in a foot, than it's approximately a 10 gal tank. I'd say you're fully stocked, IMO

Using that estimate, that's 6.2 gallons/26 liters.

But lets say it IS a standard 10 gallon (39 Liters), which is a small tank btw.

If it's really a 10 gallon ... you are wayyyyyy overstocked. I'm not sure what a small suckerfish is? I'm assuming a pleco? Regardless you've got too many fish for that size aquarium and you actually need to look into getting a larger aquarium, or finding a home for the extras.

I'd say you're overstocked. That's a lot of fish for that small of a tank. What type of "suckerfish" do you have? Does it look something like this:

Sailfin pleco

Or like this:

Oto catfish

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Glad you joined us.

I second what other members have posted. And I would suggest you consider re-homing some of the present fish or a larger tank, as the fish you now have will start having problems in time as they mature.

It's already been said you have no room for more fish, but just so you know, the fish you were considering would not fit in with what you have regardless. Check the data in the profiles as another member recommended.

Byron.
