Help! Want to add more to 220 gal Tank

So my boss has a beautiful saltwater reef tank that he's recently set up. He's filled it with plenty of fish, coral and inverts but he wants to add more..
His tank is 220 gallons and it's holding all of these marine creaturs at the moment:

3 x Gold Head Sleeper Gobies
3 x Green Chromis
2 x Mandarin Gobies
1 x Engineer Goby
1 x 6-line Wrasse
1 x Mystery Wrasse
3 x Banner Cardinals
1 x Yellow Watchman Goby
1 x Bi-color Pseudochromis
2 x Fancy Percula Clown Fish

1 x Blue Tang

1 x Green Star Polyp
1 x Xenia
1 x Mushroom Rock
1 x Combo Rock
16 x Tiny Reef Hermits
10 x Trochus
2 x Emerald Crab
2 x Cleaner Shrimp
1 x Duncan Coral
12 x Mexican Turbo Snails
2 x Hammer Coral
4 x Brain Coral
2 x Frogspawn
1 x Yellow Polyp
1 x Bubble Coral
2 x Gorgonia
1 x Leather Coral
1 x Riccordia Mushroom
2 x Red Starfish
1 x Zoanthid Polyps
1 x Maxi Mini Anemone
1 x Plate Coral
1 x Goniopora Coral

So my questions are :

Is he at his maximum capacity? If yes, when would he be able to add more?

And if he is not at his maximum capacity, how much more can he add to the tank?

I don't know how much live rock he has in there but I'm assuming it's a large amount for all the coral he's placed in the tank.

If someone out there would be so kind to shed some light on this subject, i would forever be so greatful.

Thank you and ya'll have a nice day!!

Everyone has their own taste about fish and if they like a certain fish or dislike a certain fish sometimes doesn't depend on looks. I will give you a few kind of fish that I think you are missing ( all the fish that I list are able to be added to your system and shouldn't harm your existing fish.) €€€€€ this shows how expensive each fish is € being about £10 and €€€€€ being about £150+.


Bicolored angelfish €€-€€€
Cherub angelfish €€
Flame angelfish €€€€
Fireball African Pygmy angelfish €€
lemon peal angelfish€€€
Red stripe angelfish€€€€
Coral beauty angelfish€€
Multi band angelfish€€€€
Bandit angelfish€€€€€


Pacific yellow tang€€
Regal tang€€-€€€
Panda tang €€€
Indian ocean sail fin tang€€€€
Pacific sail fin tang€€€
Brown tang€€€
Puple tang €€€€
Chevron tang €€€€
Long nose tang€€€€


Suntail goby €€
Shrimp goby €€€
Prawn goby €€
Candy cane goby €€€€
Midas blenny €€
Red sea blenny €€€
Bicolour blenny €€
Dragon goby €€€€
Neon goby €€

( only these gobies and blennys will go with your gobies and blennys you already have.)


Blue chromis €
Green chromis €
Panda chromis €€€

Only pick one angle fish and one tang the rest you should be able to pick 2-3 and still not cram your tank.
I hope you find this easy to use for more info email me at david.shatz123@gmail.com
