is this over stocked

None of my fish are full grown but I put the full size down for everyone. When I got all of them I didn't think I had too many but now that I keep thinking when they all reach their full size its going to be crammed. Thinking about getting rid of a Bumble bee.

3 yellow fin mbamba 3-4"
1 Afra cobue orange back 4"
1 greberi 5"
2 rusty 3-4"
1 tangerine tiger 9"
2 Bumble bee 8"
2 red zebra 3-4"
1 makonde yellow black fin 6.5"
3 ericotaenia hap 5"
2 clown lab 3-4"
1 aurora 5"
1 German red 5"
1 ice blue zebra 6"
2 yellow labs 4"
1 pictus catfish
1 stinkpot musk turtle

They all seem to do great and none of them fight so far
I forgot to add its a 180 gallon

I don't think so of the size tank you have IMO. I had to re home my bubble bees. They were bullying everyone in my tank. Honestly I think I have that many in my 75 gallon lol.

I don't think you're overstocked. You have the desirable footprint. Just make sure you have tons of caves for all of them.

I keep wanting to add more but then I think of how crowded it may look when they all get full grown. At first my rustys was beating up on everyone but they quit that now every once and awhile one of the clowns and yelled labs get into it. When it comes to food the bigger Bumble bee takes what he wants and none of them mess with him even the turtle Lol he bulls the turtle and picks at him but not the other fish

When the turtle gets abit older and bored of being pecked that fish will be battered. The stinkpot won't be liking having a busy fast flowing tank, how long have you had it? Do you have the correct equipment for it, such as light, basking areas etc.?

I was thinking he is going to become food but he acts like they are not even there. I made a spot for him to get out with a basking light but he never comes out that I've seen. He does like to go up the ramp and jump off into the water it will do that over and over. The turtle is full grown and I've had it for 3-4 months now and seems very happy

What about a UVB? Sorry I have to ask otherwise people will never know if they are missing vital equipment.
