Is my tank overstocked?
 
I dont think it is, but ?

Ive got

1 very small- still young zebra lace angel
1 HUGE balloon molly. hes like, 2 inches long
4 small butterfly ballons- 1inch long
4 phantom tetras
1 black molly
2 platys
3 cherry barbs

And, this is in a 25gal long tank :)

Not so much about whether fish will fit ,but rather about waste created and parameter's between water changes. What are nitrAte levels between weekly water change? (need to be no higher than 20 ppm).
The tetras,barbs,and platy's prefer cooler water than the mollies and Angelfish who are quite happy at 80 to 82 degrees F .While the tetras ,barbs ,and platy's will thrive at much cooler temp between 74 and 76 (high side)degrees F.
I personally would not add any more fish especially if female livebearer's are present, they can multiply quickly. Is what they do , and then,,your tank will be overun with fry.
