Can I add more females?

So my betta sorority currently houses 6 betta females along with 10 neon tetras and 3 cory catfish. This is a 29 gallon tank. I was wondering if I could add a couple more females. What do you guys think? Thanks!

If it is heavily planted with lots of hidey holes, id say defiantly!

i think thatd be on the verge of overstocking and ammonia building up very fast, which burns them

UNLESS you change more water every week to keep up with the high bioload

well they certainly still count and its better to be under than over.......

most people suggest an inch of fish per gallon for small tropical fish

also the cories will grow a few inches, i have one thats almost 3 inches already
