I am sorry to say this but you cannot add anymore fish, actually you need to upgrade your tank or rehome the two you have. A ten gallon tank isn't suitable for very many types of fish but there are a couple options but you seriously need to make a decision about the ones you already have.

as said, an angel and the pleco (i hope its not a common pleco) will get to big for that tank and you are going to need at least a 29 gallon for the angel and pleco (unless its a common then youd need at least a 90 gallon i think)

True stories. The angel will for sure get too big for the 10 g unfortunately. If the pleco is a dwarf version then the 10g could possibly be suitable for it but if its a common pleco, it grows to a length longer than your tank. I picked up a 29g with filter and hood for $80 which is a good deal, and I know petco randomly has $1 per gallon tank sales which are steals. There's not a whole lot you can do to avoid getting a bigger tank with the fish you have. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Pics of the pleco would help to identify it
