How many fish?

I have a 60 gallon tank, 60 pounds of live rock,60 pounds of live sand, reef octopus protein skimmer rated for 200 gallons and a Flilstar xp3 canister filter. Right now the system is working extremely well with 6 fish(clown,4 Chromis and a hawkfish). I would like to have 9 or ten. Does this sound unreasonable?

depends what size fish. add them slowly and if you see it gettign unstable then stop.

you do have a rather large skimmer to help control dissolved organics so keeping it a little over stocked shouldn't cause to much of an issue, but the fish may get stressed out if its overly crowded
