10 Gallon Stocking

I have a 10 gallon planted aquarium I have been slowly stocking over the past two months. Right now I have 5 Glow Danios, 3 Albino Corys, and 2 otos. Is this the maxium you would reccomend for this tank, or should I add more?

A school of smaller tetras or rasboras are a common addition to 10 gallon aquariums, such as neon tetras. These fish are happiest in schools of 6+; anywhere from 6-10 would work, depending on other tank mates. Another common addition is a small group of livebearing fish like guppies, mollies, or platies. All of these fish would be comfortable in groups of 4-6 in a 10gal. I'm not sure which bottom feeders are recommended for a tank of this size; I'm pretty sure corys prefer larger tanks.

I keep a pair of dwarf gouramis in my 10gal (along with 7 neon tetras) and although I've heard they prefer larger tanks mine seem happy. They're an extremely friendly personable fish, I couldn't ask for much more in such a small tank. No more than one male in a tank this size, however, as they can be territorial.
