Overstocked... help?

Hi,
Just wanted to get some feedback on stocking for my tank. Does this seem overstocked?

-55 gallon, fluval 407 canister and aqua clear 150 HOB
-Heavily planted
-2x 20-30% water changes a week
-Fluval Plant 2.0 light, and dose with flourish excel every other day
-Plenty of driftwood

Water parameters
-Temperature is steady at around 80 F
-0 ppm ammonia, 0 ppm nitrites, 6.0 - 6.4 pH depending on water change (public water is basic), 10-20 ppm nitrates (if 20 ppm I do a water change)

Fish
-1 gold nugget pleco L177, 4 inches
-1 farlowell catfish, 6 inches
-1 bristlenose pleco, 3 inches
-2 angelfish, 3 inches each
-4 sterbai Cory, 2.5 inches each
-4 kuhli loaches, 3 inches each
-2 electric blue Acaras, 3 inches each

Aqadvisor seems to think I am due for catastrophic issues, so I thought I would see what opinions/thoughts I could garner from this group! Thanks!

I would say you are fine. If your Nitrates don't go over 20 after a week, there is no problem.

I have a 55 gallon (212 litres) also. Total water content is only 160 litres. You maybe surprised in how many I have, in my aquarium. I have good filtration mind and all fish are healthy. I had a Eheim Pro 250+ external filter and upgraded to a Fluval FX4 which turns the water over 10x.

94 fish plus the snails

Bottom feeders
30 Bronze Corydoras
4 Bristle nosed Plecos
2 5 inch plecos
6 Black mollies
4 loaches
6 Amano shrimp
Lots of baby Malaysian trumpet snails

Midwater feeders
12 Neon tetras
12 Lemon tetras
250 Ramshorn Snails
4 Otoclinus catfish

Top feeders
12 Zebra Danios
