10 Gal Tank--looking to add more fish

I have a 10 gal tank, and I was wondering what the max amount of fish should be in it. Currently I have three zebra danios, two platy's, one cory, and a beta. I have a good filter, heater and even added one of those smaller bubbler-filters(not sure what its call). And I wantd to add a few more fish that are a bit more flashy because my Beta doesnt mind colorful fish, which is nice. So I was thinking of addng another platy or some more cories.

Well, the danios and cories are both schooling fish that should ideally be kept in groups of six or more, so I would get more of those fish. However, since your tank is fairly small, you want to be careful not to overstock it. I would add two more cories and see how well the tank handles the increased bioload.
