Overstocking my tank

I have a planted 35 gallon with the following fish:

Pair of Keyhole Cichlids
1 Bolivian Ram
2 Apistogramma sp.
6 Cardinal Tetras
4 Panda Corys
5 Marbled Hatchetfishes
2 Bumblebee Gobies
1 Black and White spot Pleco
1 "dwarf" Gold Nugget Pleco

I went to a Petco for dog food and glanced into the fish department knowing I would end up buying something and bought 3 Blue Rams for $18.99 each. The only problem I had in this tank was the Bolivian Ram beat up his female friend to the point where she was floating at the surface barely breathing so she was moved to the Jack Dempsey's tank. Is this way overstocked or am okay? Should I upgrade tanks and to what size? Thanks

so your putting the 3 Blue Rams in the 35G? I think you would have a LOT of issues there with the rams, IMO.
