37 gallon stocking

Hey everyone, yet another stocking question from me
I have a 37 gallon tank with:

1 pearl gourami
1 kribensis cichlid
5 assorted platys
3 cory catfish
1 farlowella catfish

My question is do i have enough room for 4-6 silver hatchetfish?

It's all about the fish!

I would add at least 3 more cories, but more like 5. They are a community fish and need to be in a group of at least 5. Not sure if two different kinds of catfish get along as I am a pleco person, so someone else could help there.

I think you could do Hatchetfish, but again, those are community fish and would recommend 6-8. This would be a good looking tank though.

Make sure to cycle the tank before dumping all of these fish in, and remember Cichlids need an established tank of 4-6 months before adding to the tank.
