Im currently looking at adding another fish but not completely sure which route to go

I have a 125 fowlr that's stocked as follows
1-black volitan lionfish (5-6)
1-niger trigger (6)
1 Picasso trigger(5-6)
1 powder brown tang(5-6)
1 green spot puffer(4)
1 MaY clown (4-5)
1 engineer goby (9-10)
1 harlequin tusk (2-3)
Im currently looking at adding another fish but not completely sure which route to go. So I've narrowed ot down to a few fish and need some input. The choices are between the following
Adult b&w purcula(3)
Picasso clown (3ish)
Leaf fish (3)
Emperor snapper(4-5)
Emperor angel(4)
I know my current MaY clown is prob the most aggressive clown breed, but he's pretty big size wise, so would getting an obviously smaller clown work out? Or should I sell my current clown and open up the possibility for a new pair? Or just forget getting another clown? The leaffish is a bit small but is toxic and also well camo'd so I think the others wont bother him. The snapper... perfect fit to hold his own among the others ...except his insane size potential. The emperor angel im worried s'not being a delicate eater.... any input would be much appreciated specifically if I could get input from someone that's owned an emperor snapper. Wanna know if they will truly grow to 2.5 feet. Also the numbers in () are size in inches of that fish

Wow I don't think you can add any more fish.. You might want to let some fishes go in the future.

Wow...You have 35 inches of fish in a 125g which is about 3.5g per fish, and most of those fish aren't even full grown! (i.e. the triggers, tang, clown, tusk)

As far as your additions, the only ones that would be safe in that tank would be the snapper or the angel. Those b&w or picasso clowns would be short lived

I personally would not add any more fish and you should consider upgrading your tank or cutting back. Those fish are gonna have traffic jams when they are full grown in there lol.

**Please educate as to how I need to practice what I preach...because I sure would like to know** (quote from another thread)

You should do more research. I'm not trying to be mean. Just don't jump on other people, if you are making the same mistakes. I'm iffy on putting 8 fish in a 350g let alone a 125g, especially when all the fish will eventually get between 6 to 12 inches. That's why someone else suggested you getting rid of some in the future. I'm just giving friendly advice. I've made my mistakes too

I just added up the lengths of the fish i have in my 125g and it 34 inches total. I don't feel overstocked in the least. I never thought to measure em but now you have me thinking....Do you think I can't anymore fish either? I was planning on adding maybe 3 more fish...

Thanks

Yeah, Brent has some huge fish! LOL... all4wheels, I see your point, but you have to also account for rock. Less rock = more room, correct? I'm no expert and I know my 90 is overloaded until I get my 125g up, but idk, if the fish aren't fighting or look stressed, isn't it more of a personal preference? (These are meant as questions, not criticism)
