From your other post you have test strips. If you are consistently seeing 0ppm ammonia and nitrite over a week, then add another fish. You don't want to be suddenly quadrupling your bioload. I would do it 1 fish at a time especially given your issues adding fish previously. You can add your snails in if you want, they wont add much bioload.

thanks so much, a nerite snail would be okay?

ultimately what’s the max of fish i could have if i had a mix of mollies and platies? plus a snail or two

can i have all male mollies or more female is better?

See my reply to your other post. A couple of nerite snails will be fine.
