Stocking Question

Right now I have a planted 55 gallon tank with a Fluval 405 filter. The stock currently is 3 Angelfish, 9 Flame Tetra, 9 Lemon Tetra and 1 Bristlenose Pleco. I would like to add another group of fish possibly some Cherry Barbs, but I am not sure that I have room for another school. What do you think?

No problem. Cherry Barb are relatively quiet, esp for barbs, so that's OK with the angels. You could also add a group of substrate fish if you want, in addition. With plants and weekly water changes, OK.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
