The problem with this question is someone who is over stocked may not think they are. You know what I'm saying??
So No I'm not over stocked... Just 1 more fish needed.. Ok 2..

Im not over yet, but when my fish are are at their full size then I will be over. But by that time I will have a bigger tank.

I voted over but not by much and that calculation is based on full grown size so technically I'm not over right now but if nothing dies (which IS the goal after all) the I am probably at or slightly over. My tank is really healthy though as the params are all pretty good and I've had zero deaths.

Determining if you are over-stocked should be based on water quaility more then the in/gal rule. If you are constantly battling to keep water parameters in check then, chances are, you are over-stocked. Let's not confuse "over-stocking" with keeping the appropriate size fish in the appropriate sized tank. My water parameters are always well within normal ranges so I do not beleive I am over-stocked. Off to the LFS, I guess...

it is a good point but lets say in 1 year you still have the same fish that have now all grown, now you may have the water issues.. So you need to think long term with this one.
