How many?

How many platies can fit comfortably into a ten gallon with a 100 bio wheel filter?

I would say 3-4 very comfortably but soon that number will triple in baby platies =)

And if the tank is heavily planted with extra charcoal, how many?

Currently I have a 2-2 male/female ration in said tank, and one male appears to have claimed the 2 females. Would this be a case where an addition of 2 more females would be okay?

Don't add any more fish. Platies are very prolific and your tank will soon have bioload problems. Eliminate one male instead. This is better than adding too many fish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
