WLC Licencing

I have a pair of Wireless LAN Controllers (WLC) working in High Availability. A primary and a stand-by device.
I had an existing permanent no-expiration licence on one of them that could hold an 10 number of Access Points (APs). Now that the network has grown, I have purchased an additional permanent licence for 20 APs and installed it on the Primary WLC.
When the new licence was installed it was enabled with "in-use" status and the old licence was demoded to "inactive" status.

The licence capacity of the primary WLC reports with a capacity of 20 maximum APs instead of 30.

I haven't purchased an Adder licence to increase the numbers of the old licence. should I switch my second licence of 20 APs to an adder licence?

Please help.

hi! actually I was consulted by the local CISCO representative that the price for an additional licence for new APs to be accommodated to the WLC is actually cheaper to purchase a new WLC and get the licence that came with it. But now from what you guys say this was probably a big mistake.

Thank you all a bunch!
