New to Forum

I've been visiting this site for quite some time and reading posts, but now I'm official!
Several years ago I started out with a little 1 gallon desktop tank for a betta. That turned into a 5 gallon tank and the betta got a few friends. Well, that turned into a 10 gallon tank and a few more friends were added. And I finally took the leap and now have a 46 gallon bowfront aquarium. I love it!! I have 5 large silver dollars and 1 large angel fish. There is one pictus catfish, 1 clown loach, 3 golden mystery snails, 4 platty's, 4 tetra's and 1 bristlenose pleco. It may sound overcrowded, but it's not.
I never thought that I'd enjoy this hobby as much as I do. I'm contemplating another tank, but I'm not quite ready yet.

Have others told you that they think your tank is overstocked?
