Even compared to my 55, you have more in it than I do (I have 7 with an oversized skimmer). Without a larger tank for the anthias, they will either get stressed out from lack of room and die or begin causing parameter issues from amount of waste produced. Sorry to rain on the parade man.

Wow! That's a awesome fish!! Thanks for the info Hank!

I've learned something new now. With Hank shedding light on the OP's question of have to say re home those fish and then maybe add your new fish.
