I'm thinking of adding some more fish to my stock.. Specifically more yellow labs is what I was thinking. But is it the right choice?

Here is my current stock.

Everything is 1m 4f besides the mains, they are 2m 6f

5 yellow labs
5 Red Zebras
5 Rustys
8 Mainganos

With this stock what would you guys add in numbers to the existing stock? or would you add a 5th?

This is a 90 gallon tank and it seems like i have TONS of room for maybe 5 more fish.

With a 4 foot tank I wouldnt add any more species. You could def up the numbers if you would like. I have a 75g with 16 Demasoni and 11 Labs in it now and plan on adding some Yellow Tailed Acei when I get a chance. So 5 more Labs would be fine I would think. What do you have for filtration?
