Can I add more fish to my 10 gallon?

823 4
I have a 10 gallon planted tank with one dwarf honey gourami, 3 panda corys, 2 african dwarf frogs, and a nerite snail. Everyone’s active and gets along I’m wondering if it’d be a good idea to add one more african dwarf frog and/or a small pleco/algae eating fish in the future. It seems like the tank could house one or two more fish but i don’t want to stress anyone out.

You should be good for a bit more stock. Depending on your filter system you could probably add a few frogs. Are you familiar with AQ ADVISER? It's a stocking calculator. It's not perfect but it's a great starting point. Be careful with plecos. The most common smaller species are the different bristlenose and most recommend a larger tank than 10 gallons

I don't think you have room for an algae eating fish, unless perhaps an otocinclus catfish, but they can be difficult to keep alive without supplemental feeding.
An Amano shrimp could be an option, or even a few ghost shrimp.
