Id add more to your current stock instead of adding another small school. Most of your fish will be happier in a school of 6 or more. Rummy Nose, Danios, Glass Cats and Cherry Barbs are all schooling fish.

do you think that it wouldn't be overstocked?

It probably won't be overstocked. You will, however, need to do more frequent water changes.

I don't think you're even close to being overstocked. But I'm not a fan of the current stock for sure.

As far as a percentage of water every 10 days, no way to know for sure, but probably not enough. 25% doesn't do much. You need to know how many ppms of nitrates you're producing weekly, then do the changes based on that.
