Sorority Stocking

So I have a heavily planted 10 gallon with a 7 fish sorority and the girls I have work wonderfully together and when I added the seventh female they accepted her with good grace. But I want to know what the absolute total of females I can have in that sorority. Its got lots of plants and an Aqueon 10 filter. Is seven the total number of girls I can have? I wanted to get some more females but only if it is possible. I dont want any accidents! Thanks!

I think you're at max with seven given the size of the tank.

I would agree with Freyja. I break it down this way, 7 fish in a 10g means 1.4 volume of water per fish which IMO is not much. Plus, things can change, for instance one of the females in my 46g was not aggressive until recently, now she chases, flares & nips at the other girls on occasion & because of tank size, plants & hidey holes the others can get away easily.
