You can't go by inch per gallon, for sure, but we've got some bigger, messier fish here, and to be honest, I've always consider the inch per gallon rule too lenient unless you've got a Malawi or Tang tank and are quite diligent.
I brought it up here to suggest that the original poster's far closer to hitting it than not, and with the types of fish included here, it's not like 55 cardinals in a 55 either.
I'm not sure I agree with the above poster necessarily, but I like the train of thought. The only concern I'd have is that I don't believe bristlenose can tolerate salt (I don't know), and mollies might actually need it (a matter of debate that I'd want to research before saying it's a must).
