You wake up one day and all your fish are dead or dying,including corals and cleanup crew.Usually due to high ammonia level or something bad got into the water or even electric shock.
I had a friend who was adding pool chemicals to his pool and didn't realize he had some residue on his hands and messed with his tank and basically nuked his tank.That is why you don't even clean the outside of your glass even with a glass cleaner.

Dang!!! That's not cool... I have a habit of washing my hands before I mess with the tank just because I use to have a snake and always had to, became habit... That's a scary thought. Just to wake up to a wiped out system... I couldn't imagine...

I don't even let my wife burn a scented candle in the same room as our aquarium.I figure better safe than sorry.I even rinse my hands with RO/DI water before putting them in my tank.
That might be overkill,of course,LOL

I think you could get away with more than six, just depends on the fish.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Theres no way someone can give a fish limit advice. Theres just too many factors. Adult size,bioload, filtration system effectiveness...etc
