Do you think I am overstocked?

I have a 55 gallon setup at 78 degrees, 7.5 ph and completely cycled. I have 4 live plants as well with medium lighting and an uncoated gravel substrate. My current fish are in my signature. Do you think I am over stocked?
The fish seem happy and dont always have other fish "in thier face" as my tank is provided with many hiding spots. The only thing I want is 3 more angels and I have heard that they may give my neons a problem but I really want both. If the angels do get the best of my neons, are there any other similarly colored fish but bigger?
Any suggestions for fun additions besides fish (snails, crabs, shrimp?")

Well, you have 30 fish and quite a few of them get over 2", so by the inch of fish to gallon of water rule, yes. But with frequent water changes and good filtration you should be okay.

If you are worried about overstocking I would recommend getting rid of your rainbow shark, don't they get pretty big?? What kind of filtration are you using? I probably wouldn't worry about it too much if your filtration is adequate. Strictly speaking, my 29 gallon is kinda overstocked, but all the fish are healthy and happy.

yeah i do a 20% pwc every sunday. There is a picture of my cannister filter in my gallery. What are some suggestions for other things besides fish? I would prefer something that didnt bug my fish or plants too much.
