55 gallon with mollies ect?

Ok i have a 55 gallon tank. I was wondering if i over crowded it? I have a 3 inch common pleco, 7 mollies, 2 3 inch archers, 3 white painted tetras and 2 2 inch columbin sharks. It is realy planted an rock caves at one end of it.

just at a quick glance...a common pleco can grow to be quite large. I've seen them almost 15".
tetras should be kept in a school of atleast 6
you may run into some tetorial issues with the two sharks

how long has it been set-up??

I think the sharks are going to require brackish water as they age.

I would leave it as is because your mollies are going to reproduce over and over again they are worse than rabbits and then you tank will be over crowded I put 10 mollies in my 55 originally and now I have well over 50 and I dont know what to do with all of them.
