Baby Fish Appeared - Will I Be Overstocked?

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.
