IMO a sump isn't going to fix your problem (saw the new thread)... Your foundation is bad, adding a new room buys you time but eventually...............

Well according to the 1" = 4 gallons with the fish I have in that sized aquarium I still would have 3.69 gallons left so I could still have one more 1" fish ?

Well I'm sorry but I can't see how it's over stocked because like I say I've followed the rule and I've seen more fish in tanks with corals so I don't understand :/?

But those people were not doing it right. For they are overstocked. The fish will be fine for a dew weeks but once the get big the will start fighting which will lead to death.

First.. the "rule"/guideline you're following is generally used for FW.
Second, if you followed rules then you'd have seen that your angel and tang need a much bigger tank (by rule). Third you'd have seen that they also are known coral nippers.
Fourth (and I really shouldn't but...) are you going to get rid of the fish as soon as they grow and break the 1" rule?

Anyway, best of luck

So, you seek advice for the purpose of telling everyone you are right anyway and they are wrong? Nobody's tank is "perfect", but with the combined knowledge available here, it helps a lot to LISTEN!!! I bet you bought your tank, salt, corals, and fish all on the same day. As for your age, don't hide behind it, because I have gotten help from plenty of teens on here who do true research into what they are doing!!!
