Alright guys, the wonderful thing about stocking is that it is subjective. That means, everyone can think something different, and (minus extreme cases) no one can be completely right about everything.
I do not think this tank is overstocked, even with the addition of danios and the one minnow. It is a well balanced tank- loaches on the bottom, gourami and the other fish on top.
I am a "heavy stocker" by all your reasoning- I have 24 small fish in a 20 gallon right now. I never have problems with the tank being dirty, or having bad parameters, and everyone has plenty of wiggle room and gets along great.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
