Hows my stock? :)

Hey guys i have a Red Sea Max 250 (66 gallons) with the following fish:
1 small marine betta
1 one spot foxface
1 flame hawk fish
1 chalk bass
1 occy clown
1 black clown
1 10" engineer goby.
I have no inverts (obviously) and i have a pretty respectable anount of corals. Lol

My question to you guys is do you think i am 100% stocked? I dont think i am, i think i can fit 1-2 fish...

The last fish i really want are
1 type of anthias (lyretail or sunburst)
1 type of wrase

What do you guys think? Lol

Hmm I think you ar close to stocking max, at least in my opinion. Maybe a wrasse can go in, but some anthias get kinda large. :-( The betta and foxface you have will get a lot bigger so you need to consider that.

What kind of wrasses were you looking at?

Thats the wrasse that eats flatworms supposedly. I was looking into one myself. I believe they can get to like 5 inches or so, so it might be a tad too big for you. lol

How about fairy or flasher wrasses? Alot smaller and really pretty too.

I really want a small wrasse but i dont like any of them.... :/ im picky lol. The six line creeps me out, the flasher always looks like death in the fish store, the cleaner has a bad track record, possum is too bland

I think we have flatworms.....lol

So do you think a melanarus would he ok? The betta is small, the fox is medium sized... We will rehome both when they grow too large
