Room for more in my tank?
 
My 47gal, heavily planted contains

8 x Neon Tetra
8 x Glowlight Tetra
8 x Pristella Tetra
9 x Longfin Panda Corydoras
1 x Whiptail Catfish
2 x Bolivian Ram
4 x Otocinclus macrospilus
2 x Amano shrimp

I've just seen some amazing Norman's Lampeye killifish - very pretty

Wondered on people's opinions if there's room for another little shoal in my tank?

In my opinion, your tank as it is presently,is well stocked.
Were it me, I would start a perhaps twenty gallon tank for the fish you are now interested in. IMHO

thanks for your opinion - i thought i was probably close to my limits. Aqqdvisor estimates I'm at 75% stocking. I think I'll skip getting any new fish for the moment and wait til i have a permanent job and can afford another tank

They really are striking fish and that picture desn't do them justice - the irridecense above the eye is like a glowing blue LED
