Am I super overstocked ?

I have a 27g aquarium.
67cm in length, 37cm depth and 41cm high.

Its stocked with the following:
9 x Female Bettas
4 x Mollies
1 x Platy
8 x horned nerite snails
10 x Neon Tetras
10 x Zebra Danios

The tank is heavily planted with fluval c2 and aquaclear 50 filters.

According to aqadvisor:

You have plenty of aquarium filtration capacity.
Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 120%.
Recommended water change schedule: 48% per week. (You might want to split this water change schedule to two separate 27% per week)
Your aquarium stocking level is 127%.

So, am I super overstocked ?

You should be doing 50% weekly water changes anyways so it might work out. Personally, id run it 7 days and test the water. If all is good and no fish aggression no worries.

I do around 40-50% pwc weekly. I've tested the water for ammonia and nitrites and they're both at 0. The nitrates are low as well and the tank is very heavily planted.
All the fish seem to be doing well and there are no fights.

Oh yeah, when you need to do 50% a week, you are overstocked.
