55 gallon stocking advice

Right now I have 8 cherry barbs and 10 panda cory cats in my 55 gallon tank. I was thinking about adding a school of odessa barbs (maybe 8) and a bristlenose pleco. I want a busy tank but I don't want to overstock it and end up with problems. What other options do I have? Should I add a top level swimmer? All suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

A group of 6-7 Odessa Barb will be fine (click on the shaded name to see this fish's profile information). Their preference for slightly "cooler" temp (78F is the max high) also suits the Corydoras panda, so a good match there.

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]
