I think you''ll be fine. Thastnot that many fish at all.

I hear butterflys are extremely hard to care for would be my only concern.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I don't think it will be overstocked. The copperband butterfly is rated a 2-3 according to Scott W. Michael on the hardiness level. Good luck!

Are longnose butterflies the same way by any chance? I only heard that about copperbands.
