Stocking my 30 gallon

So I just recently acquired a new 30 gallon and need some ideas for stocking it. Maybe. I already have 3 fish. I have an Electric Blue Cichlid, a Featherfin Catfish, as well as a silver plecostomus all of which are under 3 inches. The cichlid and catfish are more active and very territorial (especially my catfish). Anyways, I was wondering if there are any compatible additions or if they should remain as is. Thanks!!!

You have no space for anything. The Featherfin gets 8 inches as it is. Don't know the Silver Pleco species, and hope it is not one that attains 18+ inches.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
