125 gallon stocking question

I have a 125 gallon tank that I just bought about 3 weeks ago.. Had a 55 gallon fowlr for about a month before I got the 125.. Wasn't planning on upgrading so soon, but it was only $300 with stand and tank on CL.. Anyways, I turned my old 55 into a sump, used my rocks and gravel from my 55, as well as the live rock that was in his 125 when I got it.. Transferred all my fish (1 sailfin tang, 1 kole tang, two clowns, one mystery wrasse) as well as my cleanup crew into the 125.. I've added several fish since then as it seems whenever I check my water params, everything reads zero..

Original fish:
Sailfin Tang
Kole Tang
Two Clowns
Mystery Wrasse

2/28 Added
3 Pajama Cardinals
Small snowflake eel

3/7 Added
Royal Gramma

3/14 Added
Falco Hawk

Pretty much done stocking, unless I can find a zebra eel, which should be soon, since my lfs regularly carry them, plus a lot of people on CL catch them out here when they go diving.. Anywho, I was wondering if the stocking is too much.. Thanks for the input..
