Am I fully stocked? Opinions...

Just wanted to get opinions as to whether I can add any more fish. I have a 4ft long 200L (about 55g) I have had 2 x b/w percs, a spotted puffer and a scooter blenny for about a year and a month ago added a decora firefish and a gold stripe cardinal. Am I fully stocked or have a got one more left? If so, what would you suggest?

No fuge! Nitrates good, never more than 5ppm. What other small fish would go with what I've got? I should add that the fish i have are all but nearly full size...

If you ever have rising nitrates then you may be at your max 15% adding fish will mean higher bioload meaning higher nitrate meaning higher waterchanges

I'd add one more small to medium sized (under 4 inch fully grown) fish.

What kind of skimmer do you have?
