55 Gallon Tank
 
Hi everyone, i was wondering if i am at the mass for fish in my tank. I have a fluval 305 filter on my tank. The fish i have are-
6 tiger barbs
1 clown barb
3 odessa barbs
5 zebra danios
1 common pleco
1 striped rapheal catfish
6 corydoras
2 rosy barbs
1 opaline gourami
5 black ruby barbs
5 platies

Thats it. Am i able to add any more fish. If i can, what species would you recommend

If it was my tank I wouldn't add anything more. A common pleco gets huge; they have the potential to reach 18" ( they have one this size at my LFS). I'm not familar with a clown barb??

I had to go google it as I'd never heard of it. You learn something new every day :-)
Any chance you have any pics of your tank? Would love to see it.

With that pleco in the tank I wouldn't be adding anything else to it. The pleco is going to get VERY large.
