Might be overstocked

My parameters are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 10, chlorine 0, pH is 7. I have a 30 gallon tank. In it I have 5 mollies, 4 guppys, 9 neon tetras, 4 Cory cats and a common pleco( I know the pleco will out grow the tank) rehoming it as soon as my friends tank finishes cycling. Does this seem to much for a 30 gallon tank? My fish seem very happy and I'm not seeing any aggression from them. I'm a beginner in keeping fish.

Mollies and guppies can interbreed, and even on their own they will breed unless they are all males.
I would rehome all of the mollies and get something else, and cories should be in groups of 6+ of their own species.

I read mollies and guppys were good together, that's why I picked them for my community tank. I must of been misdirected. I really like my mollies. What do you recommend as a replacement for my mollies?

And my corys I plan on getting more corys but I'm waiting to rehome the pleco first.

Mollies and guppies can be good together but they can cross-breed. Instead of the mollies, how about a school of tetras?

I'll admit I've never really been into live bearers. But isn't it platies and mollies that can breed? Not guppies and mollies?

Well I don't know, I just know it's two of those groups that can cross-breed lol.

IMO, the mollies and pleco need to go. Their bioload isn't doing you any favors.

So I'm gonna assume that I don't have too many fish I just have the wrong ones!
