That doesn't look bad to me. The inverts and corals don't add much to the bio-load. You just need to mostly look at the fish. That's only 10 fish in a 125 and that's pretty good. Plus most of those don't get very big. I have 11 in a 90g with about 125 snails/crabs plus corals, urchins, etc(you could see my gallery and profile for the rest. My water is good and the tank is not overcrowded at all.

In addition the posted list? so it would be 2x True perc and 2x cardinal?
That may be stretching it. What are doing for filtration?
Do you have lots of LR for filtration and hiding space?

I'm afraid not. They want a 4' long tank, preferably bigger than 75g. I have a baby purple in a 20g QT right now and he looks like he is desparate for more swimming space. Unfortunately he's in QT for at least the next 5w.

Yeah I should get 125lbs of live rock in there plus some "lost city of antlantis" decorations... I probably won't get two of each... just a thought lol... maybe just the cardinalfish... Odie (my true percula clownfish) likes to hang out with Bria (my blue tang) all day right now anyway... seems like he's quite content with her... hahah
