Urgent: how much more bioload can my tank handle?

Right. I'm trying to decide if my bioload can hold anymore mollies, white cloud, or platies. My dalmation molly and platy have been best friends from the first day. It's kind of cute. The white cloud seems to be trailing along with the neon tetra. Should I buy more, do I have a place to buy more?

It's a 55 gallon. I cannot buy another for a long time, so the pleco stays.

1 Betta Fish
1 Common Pleco
1 White cloud
1 Pladdy
1 Dalmatian Molly
1 African Dwarf Frog
1 Malaysian Trumpets Snail
5 Ghost Shrimp
12 Neon tetra

Didn't you make a thread about this before? Anyways...
The Pleco produces a lot of ammonia so your stock needs to be limited. :( so technically you would only be able to have the Betta, Pleco, 8 Neons/Platies, snail, frog, and shrimp. I'm not sure if this is the maximum number of fish you can get, though. The Mollies prefer BW than FW as they get easily stressed in FW than BW. Happy stocking...

You can use aqadvisor to put in you filter(s) and tank and stocking options to see what the stocking level and filtration capacity will be.
