You are fine IMO. You could probably even add a little more if you wanted like 5 neons or something along those lines.

i am thinking one of these (in order of preferences)

2 more angels (some sort that do not grow too big ... maybe marble again)
or
3 females gupy + 1 more male (forgot i have a male gup)
or
1 more female moly + 1 more male
or
1-2 more cory (i real love how they clean everything)

I think you are well stocked. Do not add any more angels. Maybe another two corys and that is it.

With enough filtration and plenty of w/c's...no problem.

tank is heavily planted, so PWC's are not always a need.

am doing them when i see the N-ites are too high

Your nitritITES should be 0ppm if the tank is cycled and up to ~20ppm of nitrATES with planted tank.
