That is a personal choice so I bow out other than to advise looking up compatibilities between fish. Can save lives and money.

In my opinion, stabilize your tank situation and get your fish healthy before adding more.

The new fish can be a source of disease and if your current fish are weakened they are very vulnerable. Two weeks may not be enough... the cycle for ich means the white spots will disappear but cysts will remain for awhile.

I agree with Alex, I would wait it out for a bit to ensure the tank is healthy enough for other finned-kids to join.  

Patience is key after the dreaded ich.

Keep us updated!

My aquariums blue. Im doing 25% water changes every 48hours. And vaccuuming abit of the substrate .my water is still good. Tempature up to 80° .alot of air....i think eventually im going To take out the platies and find a bit bigger fish. I want a tank where i can breed and not lose To much fry. I was thinking of getting some bamboo filter shrimp and khuli loaches maybe. Do mini sharks go good with thèse types or are they To agressive?Will i lose to much fry ? I was also thinking of gourami or discus.
