Okay to add more fish yet?

Okay, tested the water, here's the new parameters:

Amonia: .25 ppm
NitrAtes: 20-40 ppm (it was darker than the 20, but lighter than the 40)
NitrItes: 0 ppm
pH: 7.0

I hate to add new fish so soon, but my platy is a schooling fish, and i think he's getting stressed from being alone. Is it okay to add more fish yet? How would I go about getting the current and new ones to get along alright?


"If you leap before you look, the game will be over before you have even begun to play" Shuten/Anubis

40 gallon, freshwater, currently housing pleco, red tailed shark, 1 adult silver mickey mouse platy, 3 platy fry (unsure of colors right now), and 6 ghost shrimp.
Filter is an Aquaclear 200, azoo 6500 air pump, and Hagen heater.

The priority here is really the stress from ammonia over the stress from being alone. I'm sure your platy will be fine. Wait until that ammonia level has dropped to 0, and the nitrite level has done the same, then add more fish...
MTS is a blessing, not a disease.
