    Is there a specific reason why you keep cories, a shoaling species, in a pair while you'd have the room to get them 6 friends to make a proper group?

    All your fish now are soft water. Swordtails like it harder. With the gourami maybe but absolutely with the kribs you already got one species that will claim a substantial part of the tank for breeding territory. You don't want rams which are inclined to do the same thing.

    If you have indeed soft water why not a group of a small schooling species?

    KEeping fish is about providing for their needs. With cories one of those needs is a group. It's not a mix and match species. Keep them in low numbers and they get shy, hide and get sick.

    Are you in hard or soft water? What tetras can you get?

    I don't know much about your other fish but the TB's would be very happy with at least 4 more but I don't know if you have room for that many more if you're going to up the others.
    ask ?'s and change some water pair of JD's and loving it.

    Good advice, I forgot about the TB's, they will more than likely terrorize anything you add to the tank.
