29 gallon Hit it or Stay?

I currently have a 29 gallon planted tank. It's been running about 4 months. I'm trying to decide if I should add more fish. I definitely can since I have a great filter and it's pretty well planted. Even 3 weeks after a water change ammonia and nitrites are 0 and nitrates are 5.

I'm just not sure if I want to add more. I have 1 male betta, 9 neon tetras, 6 black neon tetras, one otocinclus and 3 African dwarf frogs, plus a boatload of ramshorn snails. Only one oto survived out of 3 originally, and he is doing well. Since his friends died he only comes out at night. They used to be all over the tank all the time. I'm not sure I have enough of the right algae to support more though, and now I have lots of snails.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

oto would be happier with more friends... But you need to supplement since like you said your natural algae isn't enough. Wafers will work, and hopefully the snails don't eat it all!!

other than that i personally wouldn't add anything else.
