10 gallon tank, trying to avoid overcrowding

Hi,

I have my very first freshwater aquarium. It has cycled (Ammonia=0, Nitrites=0, Nitrates=15). I currently have 3 Platties and 1 skirt tetra. I would like to get 1 more skirt tetra and 1 mystery snail. Do you think that sounds ok? I know 10 gallons is a small tank and I just donít want to overcrowd it.

I would rehome the skirt tetra. They need to be in schools of 6 and 10g isn't big enough for that.

Your nitrates are high and I would look into some live plants if you don't already have some but skirt tetras like big groups so you should rehome if possible idk where you are located but if your in Florida like I am I can give you some snails mine laid eggs and now I have like 40 and no one I know irl has fshtanks
