1. The amount of fish that you mentioned in your 29 gallon tank is indeed overstocked.

2. Congo tetras do best in a group of at least 6+. Same with your tetras and rasboras.

Because of your filtration I'd say you're safe-ish, but I personally would change more water every week. Plus I don't think a clown pleco fits in a 29, though I could be wrong. Even bristlenose need a 35 gal long to be happy.

Welcome to FishLore!

You can let your nitrate level be your guide on how large of a water change you need to do. You want your water change to be large enough so that nitrates never get over 20ppm.

I personally don't think you are grossly overstocked, just maybe not stocked quite properly. I would pick two of the schooling fish you like best and up their schools to six or 8. Your clown pleco is fine, they can go in as small as a 10 gallon.

Thank you all for the advice! Ill keep a close on everyone and see if anyone shows any stressful behavior. If that happens, I'll look into possibly rehoming or upgrading my aquarium size.

Nice looking tank.
Thank you!
