Fish Loading in my 20 Gallon Tank

Good day everyone. New to aquariums. Family is pretty excited with our new critters. Stumbled across this app. Had great reviews, Thought I'd giver it a try.

I have a 20 gallon heated fresh water aquarium. The species living in this tank include the following:

1) 3 x guppies
2) 3 x danios
3) 3 x corydoras
4) 2 x Swordtails
5) 1 x Albino Bristlenose

Total: 12 fish in a 20 usg tank.

Question: Do I have this tank overstocked?

Nope, I would up the danios to 6, Cory's to 5-6, and make sure to get 3 male guppies or else you'll have a lot of baby's very quickly. There's also a website called AqAdvisor online you can check out for stocking, it's not great but its a sort of guideline

Thanks for the feedback. Guppies are indeed males, only. Will up the Danios and Cory's (as suggested). The Cory's are fun to watch.
