Once again, overstocked?

It's barely been a month and I can't stop the itch to buy more fish... This is a 29 gallon, densely planted tank, 2213 Eheim.

2 Bolivian Rams (non-mated pair)
1 Apisto Agissizi (female)
2 Mini Chocolate Gouramis (eyespot gourami, these only get to about 1.5 in)
5 Praecox Rainbows (1M:4F)
7 CPDs
1 furcata rainbow (I bought him to keep the CPDs in check)

Am I overstocked for my filtration? Aqadvisor puts me right around 100% of my stocking capability. I really want to add another bottom dweller, like a small (3) group of dwarf cories. Would it work if I took a Ram out and replaced him with cories? Maybe, lower my rainbow count? This is for my main living room tank, Less is more? Thanks in advance for any help.

I have the same problem. As soon as I get things set and stable I want more fish.

Sounds like you have a lot in there, but I will let someone else address that for sure.

Just a fellow "itcher" empathizing.
