is this a bad idea?

i would like to keep, if at all possible, some botia striata. here is my problem. My 29 gallon already has 3 botia angelicus, 3 sunset platys, 3 red eye tetras, 3 black skirts, 2 hillstream loaches, and 1 paradise fish. The hillstreams are 1 and 2 inches. The botias are between 2-3 inches. They have never shown aggression towards eachother or the other tank inhabitants. Is this a bad idea (1-2 striata max)? If so, what would be a better selection to add, if i can?
