Suggestions and advice please !!!

I have a 75 gallon fish tank and slightly overstocked!
2 yellow labs
3 red zebras
1 SRT Hongi
2 yellow tail acei
2 socolofi
1 ruby red peacock
2 blue dolphin
2 red empress
2 lethrinops intermedius
1 Frontosa

Now first of I know I've been told that my ratio should be changed from many people but I've had my fish tank running with this stock for almost 2 years now and no problems!! But I'm open to suggestions and comments still because I'm always up for learning something new!! But my questions are I have two HOB marineland 350 bio-wheel and think I want to put a canister filter just to have extra extra over-filteration!! So what filter do you think I should add and any advice for them would be greatly appreciated!!!! Second do you think it would be ok to add a trio of 1 male 2 females Gallerya reef white top Cynotilapia Afra would it be ok or no?? Please any adive would be greatly appreciated !!!

I have a fluval 406 and absolutely love it. Super quiet and you can customize the media baskets to suit your needs.

I have a 90. I run the fluval 406, a hob aqueon filter and two whisper 10-30i internal filters. I am not familiar enough with your stock to comment on it though. I have 10 African Cichilids and a large Featherfin catfish in mine.

Haven't seen you in a long time
I think your probably the best person to answer your own question because I can only tell you what you already know. Like your fully overstocked. The one your asking about for sure can go with the others but its up to you if you can handle or the tanks water quality can handle more stock.

I've been good started working nights so I can take and pick up the kids from school. Haha but I get more time to play around on here now

Your filters now may be able to take the hit of adding new ones bacteria wise. It just means possibly more water changes. I would have to recommend not adding anymore for 1 you don't know how the others or the tank itself will react. For 2 even some of those ones that you have that will grow to be almost monsters should be in a 6' tank. I would look to do an upgrade if it was me or add them and plan on an upgrade within a year.

I wouldn't it may create a chaos with the others. I'd wait till the upgrade in all honest. Then move them and the new ones over all at once. Let's see a picture of that thing, does it still look the same?
