Could I/Should I add more fish or leave asis

I have a 20 gallon high cycled tank with a few live plants and tuns of fake plants to provides lots of hiding places and caves. I do plan to replace all the fake plants with live ones slowly over the next few weeks.

Right now I have 2 dwarf gouramis, 4 Golden Pristella Tetras, and 3 corys. Should I add a few more tetras and corys? If so how many? Thanks everyone!

Are ya'll sure thats not too many? 16 fish sound like a lot for a 20 gallon.

Nope, that's not too many. You should be just fine. I would add them in two batches though so as not to overload your filter.

That would be ok because tetras produce so little waste that you can keep quite a few of them in a tank

I added 2 more tetras and 2 more pepper corys. I think thats all I'm going to ass as anymore would be a really full tank since its a 20 tall not long. But I love having 6 tetras rather then the 4, looks nice!

I finally got around to take pictures, so here you have it! 2 red dwarf gouramis, 6 Gold Pristella Tetras, and 5 pepper corys.
