Would help if we knew the tank size and who else is living in it?

Lets assume you have 5 Molly and 5 Platy's each and nothing else in the tank then I'd add no more then 5-7 Cherry's in it.

Cherry barbs do best in trios of 1 male to 2 females. The male will compete for the attention of the females and will display for them, which is pretty cool to watch.
