Can I add more fish?
 
I'm thinking of adding a small shoal (5) of Cherry Barbs to my tank.

65 Gallon (36"L x 24"H x 18"W); Planted
Nitrate 0 Nitrite 0 NH3 0

2 angels (50 cent piece size)
5 otos
3 corys
4 platys
5 silvertip tetras
7 serpae tetras
3 dwarf gouramis

Will that overcrowd my tank?

I have a mystery snail, a ramshorn snail and a few pond snails as well

I think you can add more fish, but instead if a new species I would recommend adding some more cories or maybe silver tip tetras. Just to boost their schools.

The cories would do great with more numbers.

Yes - and then get another tank so you can have your barbs too (total Multiple Tank Syndrome enabler here, lol)
