The amount of oxygen in the tank is determined by the air surface, where oxygen exchange takes place. You don't give the dimensions of your tank, but I would say follow the rule of one inch of fish for each 10 square inches of air surface and you should have no problem. (One of the biggest mistakes aquarists make is overcrowding their tanks - which causes no end of difficulty.)
