What filter is on the tank?

You're pretty close to stocked but you could add a group of 4 small corys (Corydoras) to the tank for something at the bottom: panda cory, cory pygmaeus, cory hasbrosus or cory hastus are ones that stay fairly small; get 4 of the same type of whichever one you choose.

Watch the Serpaes, they may nip at your mollies.

At some point you might want to think about either getting a larger filter or adding a second one (AquaClears are good filters; an AC 50 or 70 would be a good choice).

Probably yes. I would also recommend a small group of Cories, depending on your substrate. If it's rough gravel it will Hurt their barbels. If it's smooth gravel or sand they'll thrive! I hope lol!

Pea is really small and fine gravel, rough has sharp edges.
