I am certainly no expert, but you've definately exceeded the 2 inch per 10 gallon rule! Good luck with it

What do you use for filtration? How are your water parameters? How old is the tank and how long have you had those guys together?

Wow! If your tank isn't telling you that there are too many fish good for you! I would think that you would be seeing ammonia, nitrite and nitrate problems and lots of agression if you were overstocked. But if you're not that's great. I take it you don't have any corals? Do tell us all about your magical reefkeeping skills that you can keep all that fish and not have any tank issues!

You gotta tell us how old your tank is and what your water readings are. Dying to know. How long you been stocked that way? How much rock? What kinda mechanical filtration?

I'll bet you knew the answer to your question before you asked it, didn't you?

6 tangs in a 125 is crazy. If you water is still good you must have been bred in fishkeeping magic.
