    So as a beginner I am wondering what to do regarding my current situation.

    Had bad advice from a store assistant when starting so have a motley stock.

    3 rams
    3 platys
    2 black and yellow mollies
    2 white sailfin mollies
    3 guppies
    2 rainbows
    4 panda corys

    Tank is 80 liters total but reasonably heavily planted.

    Filter is Superfish aqua flow 300 which I modified according to a YouTube video by Richard. So top half has biogravel and bottom half sponge of two grades.

    Thing is recently the sailfin mollies spawned and there are 5 small fish that seems to be surviving.

    I get the feeling that with what I have I may already be overstocked and it would be an issue with the babies. But I don’t have another tank so it’s leave them in, try to pass them off to someone else or, god forbid, euthanize them.

    What should I do? Can this tank take on 5 more sailfins?

    IMO your already overstocked being yoiur tank is around 20 gallons. I would see if the fish store that gave you the bad advice would now be willing to give you store credit for the fry.
