Are my fish stock levels too high?

Hi, my first post.

I have used this site to help stock my fish tank. I have a 64 litre tank with a fluval 206 external filter and a bit of a newbie.

We have 6 cardinal tetra, 3 galaxy rasbora, 4 embers tetra, 3 threadfin rainbows, 5 male guppies, 4 bronze corys, 2 blue rams and 2 dwarf gouramis. Tanks been going 6 months and we have gradually added fish. Plant wise I would say medium, but they are growing fast with healthy new shoots.

I know some of the fish need more numbers for shoaling but we lost some embers and rasboras and will phase them out.

We do a 20% water change each week.

Fish are all quite active and feed well. Feeding is once a day The dwarf gouramis however have started to look a bit lethargic and one has developed pin holes in its fin.

Should we do more water changes to twice a week or maybe every other day at 10%?
