You think i got more room for another fish?

So ive had my tank for about 5 months now. Have a snowflake eel, Volitian Lion, Royal Gramma Bassalet, Maroon Clown, 2 Striped damsels, and a coral beauty. I know i am pushing it already, but do you think i can add another small fish? Also somehow i am putting coral in the tank with out any problems.

the small fish would probably be dinner for the eel or the lion

its up to you but i would be concered of a tank crash in the future due to, to much bioload and not enough lr and bacteria to handle all the waste but just my opinion

A few months down the road, your gonna only have a lion and an eel.
Your lion may be small now but they grow fast and a 75 with a volitan and an eel is pretty much at it's load capacity. Keep in mind that lion can get to 15" and you really need to factor in adult size when trying to figure bioload and stocking.
