Stocking OK?

This is my stock now in a 26 gal. bow front tank:

7 zebra danios
3 platys
3 black skirt tetras
1 peppered cory

Tank is cycled and running along just fine. Am I already overstocked or could more go in? Would like to add a couple more cory's or maybe a dwarf gourami. Safe?

Thanks for any input.

I'd you are going to add anything you need to up your school of black skirts to 6 and your cories to at least 4. Then you are probably stock IMO.

Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and added three more black skirts for the time being. I'll give it a few weeks to let things settle back down from the additions and then hopefully can add a few more cories.
