I am unsure of my tank is overstocked and wanted to ask

Penguin225

I have a 29 gallon tank with
3 dalmatian mollies
4 cherry barbs
2 platys
6 corys
1 tiger barb waiting to rehome him so he is not alone
2 baby bristlenose plecos recently purchased them the lady gave us two im concerend they may not be able to live together but have also heard they can with enough hides and cover
any advice appreciated
also i currently rent and cannot get much bugger of a tank unfortunately due to weight
for background if it helps I have 3 tanks the 29, a 10 with a betta and two snails and a 6.5 gallon with a betta and one snail

Should be just fine IMO. Just keep an eye on the BN, if you end up with a pair they will breed and you will be overrun. Same goes for the live bearers, they breed easily.

Okay will do and actually our last batch of fry we took to our lfs so we weren't over run

I'd also watch for any territorial behavior from BN's of the same sex, especially males. I have two but my tank is twice the size.
