It's not the best setup, but it's not the worst either.
-Your boesmani rainbowfish will outgrow the tank.
-If this dwarf rainbow fish is melanotaenia praecox (praecox rainbow) it'll outgrow the tank too.
-That's quite a bit of platies and swords. What's your filtration and water change schedule?
-Betta/gourami/guppy combo is sort of bad news. Your betta and gourami could get extremely aggressive toward each other and your betta may mistake your guppies for rival males because of their same long finnage and colorful patterns on them.
Until we know your water change schedule, filtration, and nitrate concentration, there is no definite answer to if this is overstocked or not bioload wise.
