I currently have a 40 gallons breeder. I have 5 paleatus Cory cats, 1 Chinese millstream loach, 2 Borneo millstream loaches, 7 white clouds, 4 nerite snails, a Betta and I started out with 7 platys. Well now I have no idea how many platys I have. You tell me. I just want to know if it is over stocked. The tint of the water is an experiment gone wrong. I was hoping to have a deep dark tea colored dark water tank. But didn't use enough peat. So it looks like green tea almost.

You should be fine. In my experiences with platies (Hence the username) they have very low bioloads assuming they are being fed a normal amount. Overfeeding anything can give it too high of a bioload. I have a pair of platies right now in a 2gallon tank,  and its been weeks since that tank has needed a water change
