Question stocking my 10G tank

Hi all how are you?

I have a 10g tank that is currently stocked with 2 male and female guppies. 2 female platies. 2 pristella tetras 3 kuhli loaches.

Can I add something more or not?

your tank is fully stocked. actually once everything starts growing and the guppies breed it will be over stocked

More live plants would help with water quality.

Aquatic plants. Stems or floaters would be great. No idea what you have access to.
