Welcome to AA!
First thing you need to do is learn about cycling and choose which method you are going to use.

That is the process your tank needs to go through to be to able properly maintain a healthy environment for your fish.

That is page 1 in the link mumma just listed above.

I advise reading this article then:
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/articl...now/Page2.html

If you don't go through this process, I'm afraid to say overcrowding will be the least of your worries.. But you've found an amazing helpful resource here at this forum! Good luck and keep asking questions.

What kind if tetra and how many and how many angels? You sound pretty stocked already. Do you have a test kit? Because your tank is only a month old it could be still cycling. That means it could be having spikes in ammonia and nitrite. These are poisonous to fish.
Did you read the article donkey posted? Any questions?
