Can I add more fish into the aquarium?

Hi guys,

So i'm new to the forums, but have lurked around for quite a while and it's definitely very informative!

I've had freshwater fish for a while and usually keep switching my fish around, but right now in my aquarium I have

4 male guppies
2 columbian red tetras
3 balloon mollies
1 cherry barb
3 red dwarf platies

The tank is 29 gallons, and was wondering if it is overstocked? Can I add more fish or would it be too much? If I can, any suggestions...something colorful

Thanks

I'd say 2 more Colombian and 3 more cherry barbs should round out the schools. At worst... 1 more Colombian and cherry barbs are one of the few you could keep as pairs in a peaceful tank
