stocking question

Hi everyone! New here, have been visiting different forums and getting conflicting advice. So here's my question:

Can I add 2 more black skirt tetras, 2 more rainbows, and 2 more cories in order to have complete schools of each, and yet not be overstocked?
They all seem to hang out at the middle/bottom, so not sure if that would be overcrowding.

55gallon
4 black skirt tetras
4 boesemani rainbows 3 zebra danios
1 spotted raphael cat
4 peppered cories
1 albino bristlenose pleco

Welcome to AA, slroo!

How long has the tank been set up? You're certain that it's cycled?

The new additions would bring you to your stocking limit.
With a fully stocked tank, it would be important to do regular water changes and have an efficient filtration system.

Thanks!
The tank has been set up since mid Jan and is fully cycled. Water parameters are below. Would it be okay to skip adding 2 more of each of the above and instead add a school of something that would be top-swimmers? Can you suggest something colorful?

PH 7.2
