You may be "hooked" for life. I would recommend that you do not add many more
fish to your tank. I believe in allowing some room for growth and you are
close to the limit. You may also get some territorial disputes and predation.
these fish are pretty aggressive and they like to eat other fish. You will need
a good biological filtration system plus frequent water replacement to keep up
with that number of fish. That leads to the next stage of the addiction --
getting more tanks and more fish. God luck and keep us informed.
