Opinions on my bio load

Hey everyone, Im running a 105G display, with the sump and fuge its about 125 total volume. I have 160lbs of LR and my water chemistry is good. The bad stuff is 0, NO3 is .5, temp is 79.0 - 80.1 over 24 hours, SG is stable at 1.025. I run reef, SPS and LPS with a few polyp corals for filler. I already have two percs in the tank and have 5 green chromis ready for entry from QT. I would like to add a clown goby, green madrin, and a purple tang. Whats your opinions on that kind of bioload vs. that much volume? I would rather add 3 of the 5 chromis now if it will be better for the other things I want later. I can easily take 2 of the chromis back to the LFS or pass them off to friends.

Well I think you have plenty of room for those. All those fish excluding the tang are quite small. I keep 16 fish in my 125 gal, and have no water problems. 4 of which are tangs.

Do you mind me inquiring about your chemisty? Just to benchmark a system with that many fish against what kind of chemistry I want to keep. Thanks again.

Amonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate around 20. I seldom do water changes, once I install my fuge I should be running 0 nitrate. Im gonna be using a 55 gal, with 6-10 inch DSB with mangroves, and possibly calupera.
