So I have a heated, filtered, and well planted 30 gallon in my bedroom.

It currently has-
1 female betta
4 cory cats
2 female neon swordtails
12-15 wild guppies

Can I add more to my tank?
What should I add?

I'll get pictures of the tank up after I get it all cleaned and settled down.
I really want a lively and exciting tank. It doesn't necessarily have to be colorful, but that is always a plus.

Thanks for the help!

Never seen wild guppies beforel... however in my opinion just having them, if they breed like store breeds, then I would say your stocked... however mi would wait for better info though...

My female swordtails generally eat all the guppy and swordtail fry they can catch. Canibalistic fish.... Here are some pictures of my fish in my tank- The little silver fish are the wild guppies. My sister bought them at the lfs for 25 cents per dozen. They ended up having lots of baby's so now they occupy her 10 gallon, my moms 75 gallon, and my 30 gallon. I kinda like the little buggers though. The big orange fish are my two female swordtails, Prim and Calli. They are my population control, making sure the guppies don't over populate. They also eat their own babies, though I have no clue how they are still having more because there's no male swordtails/mollies in the tank...

Does anyone else have some suggestions?

I'm most definitely getting more cory cats, but I'd like more middle dwellers and a few for the top.

Hi therei! Your top has enough fish, and Cory's for sure at least up to 4 but you can add a school of neon tetras or another small schooling middle dweller. And a gbr for centerpiece! How bout
3 swordtail (1m 2f) they do better like this
12 guppies
4 Cory's
6 neon tetras
1 gbr

I actually went to the pet store today and bought 3 platy and a zebra snail...Would it be over stocking my tank to add those neon tetras now that I've added the platy?
