Gourami and Kribs
Could i keep 2-5 dwarf gouramis live with 2 kribs along with 10 neon tetras, 3 peppered cories, and 5-10 guppies in a 30 gallon, I know it sounds over stocked but i am thinking of selling the guppies.

No, It would be hugely overstocked and you need to research your stock choices better.
You cannot even keep more than a single male dwarf gourami [They are almost ALL male] in a 30g tank, More than one DG will be a blood bath due to aggression and territoriality issues [2 to 5 is not happening here].
If your kribs have breeding pair potential they may get very nasty defending the bottom when spawning and the DG may not be able to adequately get out of 'their territory'
Losing the guppies makes little to no difference in your bio load.
If you are keeping cories you need twice as many at a minimum & again in a limited footprint like this I would be concerned for the corys if the kribs mated.
